So, I had my first dialysis on December 22. It all went well until it didn't. My fistula stopped working and they weren't able to canulate me at all. I had a perma cath placed and they used that for dialysis and that went great. The surgeon re did my fistula and we are now using that for dialysis and it is working perfectly. I'm scheduled to have my perma cath removed near the end of April. Keeping my fingers crossed that the fistula continues to function well.
I got an attorney who specializes in disability cases and applied in December. I was shocked to find out that I was approved without much fuss. My husband applied for disability nearly two years ago and is still not approved.
I'm not feeling better but I'm still here. I can deal with it.
