After dialysis i turned pale, i looked like a ghost everyone said that.what could be the cause? Im guessing my blood levels are low.
Or infection?  Were you able to have a doctor look at the site this week?

Good that they took cultures, that should be to look for new infection or different infection that the antibiotics might not be addressing.  The good news there is if the results are bad your doctor should be alerted.
