Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. This belching and loss of appetite needs supportive care wit prokinetics, small frequent meals and symptomatic care.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
