My m-i-l has been having frequent UTIs . She has Dementia and has been living alone with assistance. The situation has prompted us to retire and buy a house so she can live with us. Unfortunately her primary care practice closed suddenly. Her physician recommended seeing a Urologist who could cover her during the six weeks transition (we live 3 hours away). We are still at least a month away from being able to move her to our home. The urologist is strongly encouraging a cystoscopy. We are going to have difficulty explaining this to her. We are also concerned about the pain not only from the procedure but also the positioning - she already has back pain(Osteoporosis)
She may actually become combative if we insist. What questions should we be asking? Considerations? Do we dare wait until she is established with new doctors?
