and welcome to IHD,
I am also in a dialysis-center and I certainly prefer it to home-dialysis, because I have to do so much to remain as healthy as I possibly can despite my dialysis-treatment and I prefer the nurses to help me "with the rest" at the dialysis-center with the actual dialysis-procedure. Like yourself, I also have a chest-catheter and in about 6 weeks time I have had my chest-catheter for two years and hopefully it continues to remain with me without any trouble until my transplant. As you can see, I am an optimist, especially since I have been put on the transplant-waiting-list... Like yourself, I know that my chest-catheter makes my showering/washing etc, a little bit complicated (flannel etc.) and I can't take any more any of my beloved hot herbal baths etc, but I don't bother about this too much because my dialysis-treatment keeps me very much alive and I certainly do much better than I was whilst in pre-dialysis when everything became ever so difficult...
I send you my best wishes and good luck from Kristina.
