    I am hanging by a thread trying to prevent dialysis. Do you really have to have that port thing grow on your arm or can't they just use the veins you already have? I a, 47 years old and have a very squeamish husband

    My spouse is on dialysis and have been since 2010. We are considering home dialysis. Would you recommend homme or the dialysis?

    I dialyzed incenter for 11 years and was a dialysis success story during that time - I worked, volunteered and traveled the world. Since 2001 I have dialyzed at home and continued to be a success, working volunteering and traveling but in addition I've felt better.

    Not only do I feel better, I think the way I dialyze currently, over night and more than four times a week, is the least burdensome way I have dialyzed in my 23 years of using hemodialysis.

    I'd say give home hemodialysis a try, the only way tio know for sure if it is good fit is to see for yourself.
