Hi Wendy - I am currently off and will remain off until I can get the process of starting dialysis but hope it's short term (my daughter recently had surgery and was in rehab for 2 months and due to the stress I was off).
I will be starting the process with a email to my doctor tomorrow, to let him know I have chosen PD. Hopefully I will be a candidate.
Thanks for all the information
Hi Wendy I was diagnosed with FSGS in 2003 and I am waiting for a transplant (I have a live donor but he is not a match so he is signing up for paired exchange program so we can try to see if there is match Canada wide).
In the meantime I have to start dialysis - I need to decide between PD and Hemo. So I have started doing some reading and I still don't know which way to go.
How is your daughter doing? As per my post I was diagnosed in 2003 - I have just started to look for a donor my husband will be getting tested soon to see if he can donate.
Allo, I was diagnosed with FSGS back in 2007 I believe..I was fine until Dec 2011 and it was a rapid decline...by May 2012, I started emergency dialysis. I received my 1st transplant 5 weeks ago and so far so good. They told me the chance for reoccurance is 30%.
