Re: Vein Mapping
The vein mapping is an ultrasound. That's what I took my mom to. It didn't take that long. I think it was only 30 min or so. Not sure why yours would be that long. The technician basically focused on her left arm and took ultrasound pictures in various spots of her upper arm.Mom also has kidney failure due to diabetes. Her creatine is 3.5 and she has a GFR of 13%. It was 15% three months ago. Her neph told her to schedule fistula with vascular surgeon. That will be in one to two months. He wants her to start dialysis in 4 months. Mom is scared but she said she will do what she has to. good luck
If you open the door even a little bit - the devil will fling it open. Keep it closed with prayer.
