My name is Karen and I had kidney failure when I was 24. I was diagnosed with FSGS which basically is that my own body attacked my kidneys. This slightly happened to my transplanted one. I was on dialysis for about 3 months till my mother donated her kidney to me. It lasted for about 6 years. I had many utis and finally an antibody rejection which led to my failure again. So now I am on the list for another one. This time around I went on hemodialysis first and just recent switched to PD. I don't know which one I will like better, but I needed more free time and from what I know PD allows you to have more fee time.
Glad to know there are so many people out there having the same problems as me because sometimes I feel no one I know has any medical problems where they can connect with me.
Personal life- well I recently got married and am a teacher. I still work full time and while it can be stressful I still handle it.
If anyone has anything to share about PD I would greatly appreciate it. I'm still getting used to the tube and right now it's more of an annoyance than anything. Can't seem to wear my jeans without it irritating the tube
