CAPD Failure - Back to Hemodialysis

My missing from the blogosphere always mean something bad had happened or is happening. Some of my friends (without my knowing) has been constantly monitoring me on Yahoo Messenger, Facebook and whatever means where my activities and movements could be monitored or traced - if I am not online for sometime they will start calling my hand phone and some would send emails to KN asking for my whereabouts and whether I was OK. They are worried if I was not well and these are the bunch of lovely and caring friends I have. Thanks Allah for this little blessings in life. However sometimes I would rather have some privacy and tell KN not to tell anyone I was in the hospital. Sorry guys.

Yes I was away, neglected this blog and again, hospitalised.

Remember I once wrote about getting CAPD (Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis) treatment for my ESRD (End Stage Renal Failure)? After 8 months the treatment failed and I had to return to Hemodialysis - hence the ugly IJC sticking out of my neck (again) and machine dependent once more. I am now back to doing dialysis at a dialysis center 3 times a week and 4 hours each time - what a drag!

This ugly IJC tube is back urggghhh!

What happened?

My peritoneal lining is the kind that is highly absorbent. So I couldn't use the lower strength 1.5 dextrose solution for dialysis and the dwelling time could not be more than 3 - 4 hours. This means I cannot dwell the dialysis solution in my peritoneal lining overnight. If I did, the solution that went in is 2500ml and the solution that comes out the next morning is less - the difference is absorbed and causing fluid overload. The same goes if I am late doing an exchange, for example if I am out for meetings, shopping etc. Using higher dextrose solution (2.5 and 4.25) wasn't good for a diabetic like me as well as the sugar content in my body will be constantly high.

My life depends on this machine

One good thing is that KN is lifted off the burden of carrying the 24 (12 kilo boxes each) every month and my Livvy too I'm sure would be happier! I too would be hospitalised less often (I really hope) because each time my body is overloaded with fluid I would have to be attached to a machine for about 3 days (yes, no moving or walking around, and no going to the toilet too! Ridiculous right?) I just hope this HD (hemodialysis) treatment would do me good. InsyaAllah.

No more heavy burden for KN and Ms. Livvy and no more storage problem for tge 24 boxes every month.
