Dialysis and Questions

Update: 11/09/12: I will be back on line soon.  I am occupied with some personal issues and having difficulty seeing. In the meantime, please answer the poll.  Thanks. 

I get a lot of readers who get to this blog site by search engines and the questions they ask are really good.  Sometime the questions give me good ideas for things to write about.  But, I’d like to make sure the people searching for answers are finding them.

For example, in the past, people had these questions and were led to my blog by the search engines:

obama care removes life helping kidney dialysis medicine
obamacare dialysis over age 75
obamacare ethics panel for dialysis
if a dialysis patient doesnt have enough fluid removed what are the consequenses?
i am a dialysis patient that cramps on the machine. what can i do to help
dialysis diarrhea
esrd and obamacare
usage of computer tablet at dialysis centre
kidney armband
 

These are really important questions and concerns and I’d like to know if these and any other questions are being answered.  Please answer the survey to let know.  Even if your question, concern, issue, etc was not in the above list, I’d like to know if you’re getting what you seek by coming to this blog.  Thank you!

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.

    Hi Devon–your blog is coming through in Spanish so please change that for my address so it doesn’t end up in Spam! I think I found your blog by chance; have in-laws in Texas, had a child in Texas and was curious I guess about the Texas part of your name! Can’t remember where I saw it, but probably in someone else’s blog that referred to ones that they read. Let’s hope besides tax reform and conversation we will see health care just get going and leave the talk behind.
