I'm confused because she's feeling more tired than ever....At least with the in center dialysis, she was just tired the day of dialysis and usually the next day she was feeling better. Now she seems to be tired more frequently, and has no energy. She even finds it hard to sit in a chair for a while before feeling the need to go back to bed.
I've read so many reviews on here regarding PD and everyone seemed to be doing much better after making the switch from in center to PD. We are constantly in contact with her PD nurse and we are trying different formulas, two yellows, two greens, and now a green and yellow fluid bag.
She is now experiencing diarrhea within the last 4 days, and yesterday she was given a dose of Imodium and it seemed to slow it down, but it was pretty bad at first. The biggest difference has been in the energy level, its less now, and she says she has more heart palpitations than when she was going to the center for dialysis.
The odd part is her labs have been great and her blood pressure, temperature, and blood sugars are very well controlled and well within normal ranges.
She has her 8 hour dialysis treatments every night while she sleeps.
What are we doing wrong? Is there something we're missing? Any suggestions? Did anyone else have a similar experience?
