i am finally starting to feel better and having a lot less pain. Thank you for your prayers. Sleeping is still a struggle, i cant get comfortable and i always feel a pulling sensation on the tube when i lie down, but i am getting used to it slowly.
today i had a post-op appointment with the PD(peritoneal dialysis/home dialysis) nurse to do a trail fluid exchange to make sure the port works good(which it does) and also to finally get my layers and layers of gauze, pads and tape changed to a much smaller dressing. it feels better already.
I have 3 long day sessions of training on aug 13, 14, and 15 and after that i am on my own, free to do dialysis at home~cant wait! And a few weeks after that i can get my other port in my chest taken out! Hallelujah!
for the first month i will have to do 4-5 fluid exchanges throughout the day, which takes about a 1/2 hour each. once i get that down i can start learning how to use a cycler that runs during the night while i sleep. which will be so nice.
I think thats all!
