Have been on dialysis!!

I have been on dialysis for over an year and have seen really tough times. maintaining intake, nausea. bp drop has been very common. I would like to answer any queries related to dialysis

So after a year, have these issues resolved themselves? Has it become a routine in your life? Do you have days with full energy?

yes i was actively looking for a transplant and after all d procedures got one from my mother. but during dialysis u need to eat something to keep ur bp from dropping,control your water intake, avoid oily food.. yes i did have bad days but u need to involve yourself in some or the other routine activity. keep urself buzy

God bless your mother for giving the gift of life! I am working hard at eating properly and trying to drink 32 ounces a day (very difficult!). Hoping I will blessed someday with a kidney transplant! Best wishes!
