My mother is 56 years old and recently the doctors here in Manipur (remote state in India) have told us that one of the kidneys has been swollen and is not functioning at all, however the other kidney is functioning but not to the best level and it is not able to support the whole body function. The creatinine level is 9.1-9.8 in the recent KFT test. With the doctors advice we have started the dialysis and have already completed two dialysis in the last 3 weeks.
My questions are -
1. Is there any chances of improving the kidney function and stop doing dialysis?
2. What is the life expectancy of a patient with dialysis?
3. Which type of dialysis is more convenient or better, Hemodialysis or PD?
