Promises, Promises!

I promise tomorrow to release my post about Patient-Centered Care! You’ll love it. It’ll be worth the wait.

In the meantime, my latest blog is about “Fluid Control“…. yes, again!  It’s a problem and always will be for me!

About DevonTexas

I am a person with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) which means my kidneys don't work. Forty or so years ago that would have been a death sentence but today there is Dialysis which means I can be hooked up to a machine that will clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I go to a center and have too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passes through a process where it's cleaned and the fluid is removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. I want to advance knowledge about dialysis so that other patients can learn from my experience and mistakes. We shouldn't have to reinvent the wheel, eh? There is so much to be learned and experienced about our predicament. There are vast resources available to support us and enrich our lives but many patients don't know about them. There are also many issues that we have to deal with whether we want to or not. So I blog about them. All comments are confidential until I approve them. If you don't want your comment public, let me know and I will respect that. So, feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy.

    I used to have the same problem with fluid control when I was in center. Since Ive been on home hemo for 1 year now, I usually take off a max of 1.5 to 2.0. after a day off. (i do home hemo 5 days a week – never off 2 days in a row). Home hemo is the best and I really don’t monitor fluid intake like I had to in Center. Sometimes if I get really stupid, I may have to take of 3.0.
