Also, I don't know your age but life is not over with dialysis. You can go to it several times a week for life and otherwise live home and/or work. IF young and healthy enough, you might be a candidate for a kidney transplant, also.
It's pronounced DIE-AL-AH-SIS and a nephrologist is a kidney specialist.
Hello from JADialysis would not typically be done in the neck.In fact a subclavian vein would be used in an emergency situation.
[under the collar bone]Not the neck unless there were a good reason...almost never.In fact we still do not know what exactly you are referring to so I am back to my original question.Can you clarify what you mean by knivesI can then help you further.
If this was large needles, indeed it was probably dialysis.
Dialysis is life saving, and extends life.
If one must go onto chronic dialysis, there are often 2 options, hemodialysis, which requires a port, and peritoneal dialysis, which you can do at home. This is used more in younger individuals.
Hemodialysis will require going to a center approximately 3 times a week, but even this can vary on occasion.
In addition we do not know your situation, and kidney transplant is an option in some cases as well.
We would need to know more to discuss these aspects further.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
