You can contact my nurse and she will set you up with an appointment and test. PM for details. Thank you so much for just considering it.

You would probably not be a good candidate. But thank you for the offer. Now go make someone's day :)

It's not so bad. Before using my fistula I used my catheter which is still in place. It's run above my collar bone and down into a vein that runs into my heart. My catheter is a little sensitive so I can't move a lot or the machines alarm will go off. I believe the tip of one of the tubes is laying on the wall of a vein. The tubes have to be reversed in order for it to work on me. I'm not suppose to eat or drink while filtering. My diet is much more restrictive than peritoneal dialysis. After treatments I'm often light headed and very weak and need too eat protein. I generally feel better after I stuff my face and sleep. The next day I feel amazing! Care to share your experience?

If you want to just donate to anyone you can try http://www.kidney.org/transplantation/livingdonors
If you want to donate to a specific person you need to contact their nurse at their transplant hospital.

Oh my god I can not wait to stand under a hot faucet for three days straight! I believe they do. I'm just worried about infection at my house. I have a cat.
