stage 4 reanal failure

I have had renal failure for a couple of years but was in denial for one of them. I wish I hadn't been and had started dialysis sooner. I have now been on dialysis for about a year. At first it was ok, but about 5 months into it I stopped urinating which brought on alot more problems like retaining fluids in my legs and feet. By the end of the day they hurt so bad that the only thing that will help them is to go to bed. I still have a catheter in my chest because my veins will not support anything in my arms. I have just started the transplant procedure and I am hoping and praying for a donor. I do have siblings that are willing to test. This can't come soon enough because I do not fair well in dialysis.....
