WELCOME TO MY STORY SO FAR......
Hi, I have Chronic Renal Failure due to Polycystic Kidney Disease and I am on CAPD Dialysis since September 2011.
I decided to set up www.kidneyfailuremystory.com because I know when I was told I had to start dialysis, I had so many questions, I felt I had no one to ask. And while the Nurses were very good to me and while I was able to ask them any question, I always went home and had more questions. Believe me, I am still learning and I still have many questions.
I should say at this stage, that I owe a huge degree of gratitude to the CAPD Nurses in CUH, who thought me how to do dialysis and gave me the courage and confidence to do it myself. I would also like to thank my Consultant. They were so supportive and just knew the right things to say and keep me calm. I will be forever grateful to them and will never forget this kindness.
I'm hoping that my journey and experience with kidney disease and the things I learn along the way, will be of help to someone else.
My Dad also has Kidney Disease and has battled with it for the last 30 years. Has had 2 transplants and is waiting on his 3rd. When I see his courage and determination, that is, without a doubt, what keeps me going.
By all means don't hesitate to ask me any questions or leave any comments you may have.
If you would like to leave a comment but not on my home page please email me = email@example.com
Thanks for listening.......
