      I can give you feedback on PD which Iwas on for a year & a half. When I 1st started I was on the cycle for 7 hours. The clinic said that was not dialysizing me enough so I went to 8, then, 9 ,then 10 finally at 11 hours I met the threshold. Plus they wanted me to do 1/2hour manual exchange. By thre way I work full time Monday thru Thursday. The bottom line between work & doing dialysis for 11 hours I couldn't do much on any day. I ended up getting an infection & they had me in the hospital. At the end of the day I ended up going & staying in-center just due to not being able to do much on Peritoneal dialysis.
