It gives me the freedom to dialyse when I want one. If I want to do something in the morning I can dialyse at night, if I want to go out in the evening to the theatre or pictures, I can dialyse in the morning, and so I’m free to do it. It just gives me the freedom to do what I want to do, when what I want to do it. A few weeks ago I booked a few days in Paris as a surprise for my wife and I dialysed on a Monday evening, I caught the plane from Doncaster to Paris in the morning at six o’clock. I had that day there, I had the next day there, and then I came home and dialysed when I got home. Home dialysis is very similar to the dialysis at the hospital except you do it yourself rather than a nurse to do it. You prime your machine and then you have someone else help you start dialysis, like a partner or a friend. Then you have to disinfect the machine after, which takes 30 minutes. I think if you are thinking about home dialysis, I would talk to the people at the home dialysis team because they are really helpful, and they’ll answer any of your questions. I would tell anybody to do home dialysis because it just gives you the freedom to do what you want, when you want. You can also do an extra dialysis if you are not feeling very well.
