I plan to write a post in the near future outlining what Dialysis is all about but I thought I would mention how I feel after today’s treatment.
I go to dialysis every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and usually get in the “chair” at about 5:45 am. It’s a quick drive of about 5 minutes to the center I use. I am in the chair for four hours and there is no give or take in that time frame. It’s exactly four hours.
First of all, it draining. I read somewhere that a four dialysis treatment is similar to running a 10k race. I don’t know about that but you are left tired. Other than that you can feel cold, light headed, and with palpitations.
I’ll detail dialysis in a future post
