Does your mother have kidney failure? Why is she on dialysis? Removing the kidneys and bladder is a very major surgery. If both kidneys are surgically removed, the pain involved might be high. How old is your mother? I think you should discuss with the doctor about other possibilities before going for a surgery. Have you had a second opinion? If not, please do. Take care. Good luck.
