Well my DH surgery was today. It went well. no problems really. his blood pressure dropped a bit but other then that all was well. He is home recovering. in a lot of pain but other then that he's still out of it from the drugs :D.

He had surgery to make a fistula for dialysis. one more step toward that.

i'm just glad this part is done and over with.

Glad your hubby's surgery went well. :thumbs up

Does he start dialysis as soon as he has fully recovered? :grouphug:

I am so happy things are progressing with your hubby. One step at a time.
Be thankful for the drugs, no one needs to be in pain when there can be help, especially with chronic conditions like this.
How is MIL doing? Helping I hope?

Sorry a little personal...

Since he's on dialysis, is he on the list for a new kidney?

Sending lots of good vibes. I hope the pain meds are helping. :2huggers:

sorry took so long to update its been crazy couple of days!

First off. Hubby's doing well. it was a bit hard the first few days. he can't use the arm at all. They gave him Tylenol with codeine. It took it steadly on thrusday and friday so all he did was sleep really. Saturday he didn't really take it and did ok. he took a couple. we have flipped sides of the bed because i kept bumping his arm. so yea he's sleeping like a baby. i'm having trouble getting use to be on a different side. sigh

Work went insane friday and saturday because we had a snow storm so everyone was like "ahhhhhh buy food" so thats why it took me so long to post again.

Not to personal for me i'm pretty open maybe to open lol. He will be on the list eventually. we're still in the process of doing things.

it will take two and half to three months for this to mature for dialysis. it all depends on how his kidneys hold up. if they stay at 15% then he will start when his fistula matures.
