Good evening. My husband, Gene has been on dialysis since August. ThIs winter tried PD but afteR the surgery to put the catheter in and another to clean the fibrins out, it was determined he was allergic the the catheter material and had to have a 3rd surgery to remove it. That was crazy! We love to travel so he is going to start the training next week for Home HEMO-dialysis. He just had the fiscular done this week so we will train using his chest port. Once the fiscular matures, we'll train for the needles. Wish us luck! We're glad to have a group to answer questions if needed.
