If a person does not wish to receive dialysis the only other alternative is conservative support until the patient reaches the point where she/he needs hospice care and comfort measures.
If she declines dialysis, she can have electrolytes imbalance mainly high potassium (which can be dangerous) and also retain fluid and may develop heart failure: edema, etc., also can develop uremic symptoms like nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, lethargy, jerky movements, and finally can develop seizure, coma, etc.
Let your mother talk to her kidney doctor in detail about it and may attend a dialysis clinic for PRE ESRD education.
Hope this will help you.
