My mother has a kidney problem. Her doctor’s are saying to do the dialysis, but somebody told me that the dialysis can only be done if the urine & stool is stopped. But my mother’s urine & stool is proper. Can you please give me your advice about what to do about above information?

Many patients with advance kidney disease still make normal amounts of urine.  The amount of urine output has very little to do with whether someone has advanced kidney disease or not.  The production of stool has nothing to do with kidney function and should not be a consideration.
