Hello, my Mum (with mid-stage Alzheimer's) has just been diagnosed with colorectal cancer and her surgeon is suggesting a bowel resection which could involve a colostomy bag. If she doesn't have the surgery the cancer will grow and spread, bringing it's own complications. But I'm worried that the operation alone will cause progression of the disease, and that she won't be able to accept a colostomy bag. What should I do for the best? All comments and suggestions are welcome!
