 The 3 day a week dialysis regimen is in my very near future,i was wondering what would be involved in travel across Canada, i currently reside in Montreal. Is there a network of dialysis centers across the country? and do i just make reservations to use a dialysis unit at any given location?

Social worker or equivalent has to make all arrangements for US citizens.  Don't know about Canadians,

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my kidneys the most.

Hi Jim

You'll have to arrange your visits with the hospitals you would like to dialysis in at least a month before your expected arrival date.  They want all the blood tests and stuff before they take you.  My husband did it (he's from Ontario).  He had dialysis in three other provinces on his way across the country.  The cost was 100% covered under the reciprical provincial health plans.
