Dialysis treatment

My uncle, unfortunately, was diagnosed with 85% of his kidney failing to function and had developed the last stage of kidney failure. The doctors recommended that he better start with his dialysis to improve life expectancy. There had been a lot of uncertainty going on in the family before everyone agreed to the decision of dialysis. The nephrologist my uncle consulted with was an experienced one and had prepared my uncle very well mentally what he could expect in the few days post his first dialysis.

My uncle had the habit of maintaining a journal and he documented every physical and mental hurdle he faced before and after his first dialysis. So, this post is a personal account of someone and I would like to share it with all so that you can know how to prepare yourself and what you should know before you go for your first dialysis.
