Hello, My name is Tom and this is my first post. I've been on the kidney transplant list for 13 months now. I started peritoneal dialysis about a month ago. My doctor wants me to have a fistula put in my arm in case my peritoneal catheter acts up. I'm really not wanting to have a fistula so I'd like to hear from someone who has one just how bad it is. I have read a little on the internet about what to expect from having a fistula and was wondering just how necessary they really are ?
