Brief Answer:
A cardiological evaluation is essential.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX! Thanks for your reply.

As she is on dialysis for last 19 years, now with prominent neck veins I would advise you to get her cardio vascular status evaluated by a cardiologist who might go for ECG and ECHO tests as per his evaluation. Further opinion and suggestion on the management on this is possible after knowing the cardiovascular status.

I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your mother's problem. A consultation with cardiologist will help. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.

Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. I wish her an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
