Question: My mother has type 2 diabetes, congestive heart failure, doesn’t want to see a doctor?



My mother is 58 years old with type 2 diabetes (untreated), congestive heart failure, and has 3 staghorn kidney stones that are each approximately the size of a quarter. She won’t go to the doctor anymore and has been self-medicating for pain. Is there anything that can be done to help with the pain and associated issues without inflaming the heart failure?

hi..
for pain relief, local hot gels,sprays, local fomentations and safer analgesics will help.
anti spasmodics will help if the pain is more.
analgesic adhesive skin patches are now available in market. just paste on the skin and the pain will reduce gradually.
thanks
