My husband had Kidney Failure and has been on Haemodialysis since 03/2015 . At first he settled into the routine fine , but then got an infection through a cannula which he still had in the base of his neck until his fistula was operating 100% . This infection went straight to his spine ( Discitis ) and the pain unbearable , he is on pain patches now . The infection has not been identified , and IV antibiotics given , the infection remains . Also he continues to loose weight , down from 98 kilos to 75 .. He also suffered breathlessness , but this has just improved after being treated for a bout of pneumonia..
