    I started Dialysis in August of 16. After a few weeks I began to get very sick doing dialysis, shortness of breath and cramping really bad. The doctor , nurses and staff realize too much fluid was being removed from me. They ask me a lot of questions about my fluid intake and how much I pee , to put it blunt . They adjusted my dry weight high . The majority of time's all they do is clean my blood. I feel 100% better , they monitor me every treatment. I always ask about how much fluid is being removed or not.

      I've only been at dialysis for about 6 weeks so far but the worst has been ironed out. Being fortunate enough to not suffer from being naseuas I only have mild cramping and bad fatigue. I believe that's also because of my low hemoglobin levels. When originally admitted weeks ago I was at a 4.1 but have now climbed to over 9.0. For the life of me I can't keep the weight on. My dry weight is now under 150 but like I said no naseua. Diet is spot on, levels are good, blood pressure great, but no weight. I'll take any recommendations to reverse this and fatten up a little.
