I only dialyzed during the visits themselves; in other words, I only kept on the fluid that helps suck out the toxins that my wretched, lazy kidneys won’t during the actual clinic visit. It wasn’t really enough to notice any significant change. During the second week, I began machine training, and also carrying fluid during the day when I left the clinic, emptying it… Read the rest
