My wife has been on APD for 2 years now. She went into hospital with lower back pain. They have diagnosed Calcification. The only cure is to put her on intensive haemodialysis for 6 days a week, with an injection of drug after each session. This will last for 6 months. Only other alternative is palliative care at home till she passes. How successful is this treatment, and can we get machine at home, as she doesn't want to travel to hospital 6 days a week as it is some distance away. She has been through a lot in last few years, losing her sight, and most recently losing a leg due to infection. She has no fight left in her and just wants to go home.
