A little trouble to get started with dialysis treatment using my fistula today: two nurses worked it out though and I ended up with three holes not the usual two. My pump speed was excellent 420-430 and I cleaned 106 litres.
coming down the pike:
- anigoplasty to fix a narrowing in the fistula
- trip to Toronto, for a final check on my healed heel
- end of August surgery to remove most of my parathyroid glands
- seems we have lost one of our dialysis patient team to home hemodialysis, this program is ramping up in this area of Ontario – I will miss yakking with him in the waiting room
parathyroid removal is common related to hemodialysis
