My nephrotic life with FSGS as a twenty-something.
everytime you post a song im like... i love that song!!
I love audioslave! I saw them years ago. I wish they’d get back together! They’re first two cds are amazing
Put one piece of tape on each of the loops and one on the actual valve thing? I haven't done that before but it sounds like it would be a lot comfier/neater!
Thanks. I actually went out and got an ace wrap. Now there’s no tape on the line! I have to keep this extension til September so I don’t want the tape gunk to start accumulating. I did try your method earlier though! Except it didn’t work
:(. The whole thing is much heavier than it looks!
If anyone has tips or pictures on how they tape their pd cath let me know because currently I’m not sure what will work best
Today was my first flush. I didn’t know they add all that extra tubing to the catheter! So now it is really long and I guess I wasn’t prepared for that. I will have to figure out how to tape it up. The nurse went crazy with the tape so I’m not too comfortable right now.
I will be learning manual as well. It’s just in case of emergencies like if the power goes out. Or like if I don’t feel like doing the cycler I can do manual exchanges.
The flush went well. It was nice because I had some ascites I wasn’t aware of and they were able to drain it before we started. I didn’t feel anything and we were able to do the whole 2000mL but 200mL at a time. I learned a lot today and I’m really excited to start.
Had a dream 2 days ago.
Sitting in a pool watching my friends swim. Hey, I can sit in the pool, since my tube is so high on my chest….*looks down*….NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
I forgot I had a pd catheter lol. /end dream.
