My great uncle in his 90's was diagnosed with kidney failure & he decided to call hospice & die. Now my brother in his 60's has been told his kidneys are failing & he's been going to classes to see what he wants to do, transplant, home dialysis or hospital dialysis.
I am concerned for him, my dad was on dialysis for years, but my brother never takes anything seriously & I'm afraid if he does this at home — he's so sloppy he'll give himself infections. I asked him if he'd do a transplant, but he said the classes said people need dialysis even with a transplant. Do you think he mis understood something? maybe he's thinking of rejection drugs.
