I'm Larry, a 62 year old who's been on nocturnal PD (AMIA cycler) for about 2 years. I'm doing 4 3-liter cycles of yellows (1.5%) per night. It's going OK, except for alarms more often than not. I've been on the waitlist for a transplant for about 4 years now, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Hello Larry,

Welcome and good luck for your progress on the waiting-list. It should not take too long anymore since you have already been waiting for 4 years, but there again, it depends on your medical history and where you are. Are you in America, Canada or here in England?

Best wishes from Kristina. :grouphug;

Welcome to the group.  You probably already found the wealth of experiences we all share?

Transplant July 2017 from out of state deceased donor, waited three weeks the creatine to fall into expected range, dialysis December 2013 - July 2017.

Well on dialysis I traveled a lot and posted about international trips in the Dialysis: Traveling Tips and Stories section.
