My mother is 83 years old and has vulva cancer. By the time it was diagnosed, it was too late for any surgery. Her doctors have discussed a port being put into her bladder to help relieve the pain from urinating, but not sure if this can be done due to previous radiation. I'm wondering if anyone has every had this done? It's so heartbreaking watching her literally die in pain!!

Hi @mborganelli. One of the things you can do to help your mom is to ask for a Palliative Care consult. The goal is to increase your mom's quality of life and address her pain during this time. For more information about Palliative care, see I wish you the very best.
