Thanks for telling us all about the reunion last year.  It was fun to read!

Very interesting post, sounds like quite an adventure.

Sorry to hear about the 15 uses when 16s prescribed.   I've learned you have to check the Rx you are given, and watch the machine for high pressures, errors, etc.  I lost a blood setup because I relied on the tech to monitor the arterial chamber; blood got too low in it; air got in the lines; and I lost a setup worth of blood.   I've prevented that same mistake from happening on 2 subsequent occasions.

I hope you are enjoying the updated house. 

Also thanks for providing the complaint letter, short and to the point...  its a good example as people often go so far off track in complaints with unimportant or even unrelated content.

Nice complaint letter.  I like the part about "propose a solution".

I only filed one once.  I used a 180 filter (106kg edw), and a clinic in TX had (emphasis, had) a policy of "160s only for visiting patients".    The final outcome was termination of that policy.

I pointed out that using a smaller filter on me was no different than me leaving early AMA, and that they work to educate patients to make them understand the later is a bad idea.

I got kicked off the transplant list because of skin cancer.  I have a nasty tumor.  They're talking surgery for 10-12 hours that might kill me.  I'm using cannabis oil on it instead.  It seems to be helping.  I'm going to get a stronger strain from my pot head step son.  He knows more about it. Anyone with any experience with cancer and dialysis please share your experience with me.

Hello Whamo,
I want to send you my best wishes for your treatment and hopefully your doctors find the best way forward for you. These days doctors can often help with radiotherapy, chemotherapy and some other newly developed treatments and hopefully there is a positive way forward for you & to get back on the kidney-transplant-waiting-list takes just about five years.
I wish you lots of strengths and all the best wishes from Kristina. :grouphug;
P.S. Cancer treatments are no longer as crude and hopeless as they were in the past and many methods of treatments have become very "refined" and don't look any longer as hopeless as they were in the past. Good luck !
