Thanks for the update. Not that dialysis is something anyone looks forward to, but hoping you'll notice an improvement in the way you feel and in your energy levels once it starts. Thoughts and prayers coming your way.

Best wishes to you! And I hope that it makes you feel so much better that you are happy you are doing dialysis.

Doc says i will lose a lot of water once the treatments start which will be a relief because at the moment i'm retaining so much water i feel like im drowning and the 300mg (furosimide)of diuretics im taking daily is responsible for major cramps,thus many of my posts are at 3am. Then theres the infernal itching that is all over.
Time frame is looking like a month or two to get fistula then evidently 2 months to let it heal then gimme that dialysis treatment. it cant come soon enough.
