Hi! Newbie here, 11% function & getting catheter before Thanksgiving. How long to heal before I actually start exchanges? I work in public education and am trying to figure out how this will all go. I'm a 55 yo mom of 5 (2 still at home in school). Found out about PKD during a miscarriage in 2000, lost my mom to PKD when her QOL deteriorated 2 yrs ago. Am trying to get on transplant list (doing all the tests). Will the extra 1/2 bath hold the supplies or the smallest bedroom? Any sharing is appreciated! I have a great support system of family, friends and faith! xoxo (kicked cancer 7 yrs ago).
