My mother is in renal failure. She was on dialysis 3 times a week and was doing poorly with it. The doctors performed surgery on her about 4 months ago to put in the tubes for peritoneal dialysis at home. Shortly after the surgery she started having diarrhea. The diarrhea has persisted for four months now even after removing the peritoneal tubes. The doctors at the er all say there is nothing wrong with her and to go home and take more pills. What is wrong with her. We are so frustrated and we have no where else to turn. Please help.
