New to the site a little over a week ago. Great information everyone. I am 58 years old, not on dialysis yet but getting there. Waiting for my fistula to heal. Just had surgery on the 19th. Most of my issues started at age 21 with malignant lymphoma. Lots of chemo and radiation but I survived. They told me I would have issues later from the treatment and they were correct. Have heart failure, living on my 2nd ICD, 2 stents near my heart, a neurogenic bladder and have to use a catheter to urinate. Also have kidney cancer and stage 5 kidney failure along with some other issues. I work everyday so the plan is to do HHD at night. Grateful for an option that will allow me to continue my life. Gotta be around a lot longer, have 2 grandchildren to love and spoil and a great family to support me. My wife has been a godsend through all of this and so has the family. Can’t let them down. Thanks all.
