Eric the Viking BS: Dialysis, a step into the unknown. (90* d) RE: BS: Dialysis, a step into the unknown. 22 Nov 15


Hi Rags.

I hope all went well at the meeting and your husband managed to go. Some advice (Well offered, not being nosey) Stop smoking, keep an eye of weight, avoid high potassium foods and be very careful of foods containing phosphorous. but I am sure you both know this. Depending on the type of kidney damage there will be other advice offered by the medical staff. I have a genetic condition, nothing can stop it. However there is now a medicine that can stop the cysts growing, which is fantastic news for the younger generation, too late for me. I don't know if it is available in Canada.

I go for a CT scan next Monday to find out which, or both of my kidneys will be removed.

More news to follow.

Thanks everybody, it is nice to be able to put a few words out of my head rather than them floating around the empty space.
