We absolutely hate Hemo dialysis but have no alternative. Right now a transplant is out of the question because of many factors not the least of which I can not have a kidney from a relative on account of the FSGS. My opinion is kidney disease help and dialysis is still stuck in the 1950's. I know there are many people worse off than I am but that doesn't make coping any easier. My advice to those going to an on site dialysis center is to remember you have rights. Get to know who are the best nurses and techs and ask for them if you have to. At 61 years of age all I do is dialysis, I have no life and no energy to do anything especially on a dialysis day. All I feel like doing is sleeping and having sex is only a fond memory. Thankfully my wife understands and is always supportive. Whatever happened to the artificial kidney?
