I have to recieve dialysis treatment three times a week for four hours. this is a never ending storie. when I go on holiday I must ensure there is treatment facilities nearby. Three days out of every week is spend on treatment. I know that i do have to have the treatment otherwise I will die, but I hate dialysis. I can not stand it, I hate every moment of it. Even though I hate it so much, I appreciate it. Without the treatment I will surely not last a week and I will be dead. I live a fairly normal life because treatment keeps me healthy enough to live. I am furtunate to have o medical aid that pays in full for the treaatment, which is over a thousand buck a day. I appreciate the staff making it as good an experience as possible, they know we do not want to be here. How do you feel about your treatment???

I really am sorry that you have to get that dialysis on regular term. It something related to kidney or what? Just curious. As for me i do not have to go for regular health check up as i have almost nil disease at the moment but you can not say what would turn up tomorrow.

Yes, if your kidneys stop working then you have to get dialysis until you can get transplant. Blessings

I do not have to have regular medical treatment as of right now. I feel very sorry for those who do. I'm glad it is going okay for you.

yes, we do receive regular treatments.. our company provides us with health benefits that is claimed via hospitalization, walk in patients, out patient, laboratories, etc. this medical health benefit has a certain ceiling amount of money that can be claimed per sickness in a year.
