My mother has a mass in her intestines she cannot be treated because she goes into respiratory arrest with anesthesia and she has vascular dementia.. what kind of timeline can I expect for her?

She had a bowel obstruction six months ago. Now she is having explosive diarrhea several times a week. Her appetite is diminished and she is weaker.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community. I am so sorry to hear what your mother is experiencing and how it must be impacting your life.

I cannot say. You may want to have a conversation with the physician who is managing your mother.

Making her as comfortable as possible and spending as much time with her may be all you can.
