@rosemarya I may have to start dialysis within the year. Can you share what it was like for you? Clinically I know what the procedures are but I've always been on the nursing side of CKD. Details and personal experience would be very helpful to those of us who are looking at dialysis in the future.

@kamama94 ,
I was only on dialysis for 8 weeks. (then I received my transplant). I needed dialysis because acute kidney failure related to my liver failure. I was in an emergency situation and critically ill at that time. This was sudden and unexpected and I never did learn much about the ins and outs of dialysis. I just did what I was given instructions to do by my medical team.
Some things that I remember are: limited liquid intake, sleeping during dialysis, hungry afterwards, limit salt and low potassium are some things that I remember. I also remembee the nurses talkimg about how much better patients do if they adhere to diet and maintain a healthy attitude and lifestyle. I wish that I could be more helpful.

There is some discussion about dialysis experiences in the Kidney Transplant discussion in the Transplant Group. It is a long discussion, but the dialysis discussions are in the first half of it.
