Welcome to the site, Ken. You are certainly a veteran of dialysis, and I am sure you will have lots to share.

Hi Ken and Welcome to IHD!

I only started Dialysis in 2013.  PD for my first 3 1/2 years til an infection caused me to lose my PD Cath.  I adapted so well to in-center hemo and the total time was so much LESS than the time I spent doing PD that I decided to stay with Hemo.

Yeah, some have always thought I am a bit weird.

But it is working well for me.  At least so far.

Tell us a bit about yourself, how you got to what you are doing now.

Take Care,
