My Mom is 85 years old and has recently developed a severe problem when she urinates. She passes feces when she urinates. Her urologists has diagnosed her with a fistula which connects her bladder with her colon. She is a breast cancer as well as a bladder cancer survivor and now is having to deal with this condition. Surgeons have told her that she more than likely will not survive the major surgery required to "fix" this condition. Her only alternative is to live with (as long as the continued infections she is having) will allow her. Can anyone offer advice as to any type diet or anything that may be helpful for me to make her days that she has left be a little more tolerable than what she is dealing with right now?
