Posted by @dailyhemo, Jul 15, 2011

How do you like home dialysis versus incenter?

I haven’t start dialysis yet, but it’s just around the corner. I am trying to wait until my 16 year old goes back to school because I don’t want to take time away from her over the summer. I am 100% dedicated to doing Home Hemo with NxStage at Davita so I will keep an eye on this thread for any replies to your post. Have a great day!

I am getting set up to do home hemo. The center I go too started teaching ppl how to do it about 2 yrs ago. Just need a clean room (no animals), a recliner and room for all the supplies that go along with it. We were in forclosure so I couldn’t start earlier because we didn’t know if we’d still be living here but now that – all that is over I can get ready. I think I can handle it, the needles don’t bother me anymore and as long as I have my husband and the phone close I’ll be okay. With PKD I already have a large stomach so they wouldn’t let me do PD. I go to RAI, but I’ve seen alot of the Davita information online.
