Fri, Feb 1 6:17pm · PD Cath, Perm Cath and AV Graft, not working in Kidney & Bladder

Sep 29, 2018 · Shortness of breath. in Kidney & Bladder

@cehunt57, Hi yes I believe my shortness of breath was due to BP meds and dehydration. Even being on dialysis I have to watch not to get dehydrated. I wish I had a living doner but can't find anyone. Loosing this 15 pounds have been so hard I have gained a couple but need to really get my butt in gear. I am on home dialisys which is working for me much better then hemo. I wish the best for you too, keep in touch, Gina

@rosemarya, My breathing is better,still have problems but not as bad. I went to the Mayo end of July to see about getting on the Transplant list and all my tests came back ok but I need to loose 15 pounds before they will put me on the list. Dosen't seem like much but I have been struggling with that. They also told me without a kidney transplant they give me a average of 5 years to live which was hard to hear. Also started PD which I like better then hemo. Hope all is well with you, Gina

My breathing is a little better, I feel it's because the doctor lowered my blood pressure pills. Now I'm on PD and get more dehydrated so that can also cause shortness of breath..

@rosemarya, Yes I found a PD belt, now training for PD. Will be heading to the Mayo on July 22nd and will be there for 6 days. I have been waiting for some information but they haven't sent it so will probably call today. Thank you for thinking of me and I hope all is well with you, Gina

Jun 23, 2018 · Peritoneal catheter Flushes in Kidney & Bladder

I had my PD catheter put in 4 weeks ago and have had two flushes and still looks like I have a couple more weeks to go mostly due to their scheduling. Just wondering how it went for other people changing to PD ?
