@devineone -you may want to cross-post this to the kidney and bladder group, also. I'm sorry to hear of this setback. Is your husband a candidate for peritoneal dialysis? It is gentler overall on a body, in my humble opinion. [My husband was on PD for 5.5 yrs before transplant]. In the course of diagnosing my kidney disorder, amyloidosis was the first one considered, then set aside.
