Re: stage 4 reanal failure
Hi and welcome. I was in the same boat as you. I didn't start dialysis soon enough, had a neck line, and didn't fare well on hemo. Have you thought about peritoneal dialysis? It is much easier on your body. It would involve a small surgery for the catheter to be inserted, but it's not a big deal.
I was on hemo for 1 year and my cousin gave me a kidney (on her birthday if you can believe it). I am now almost 9 years post transplant and am doing well. Feel free to ask lots of questions. There is good support here.
