You have two options - hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis requires AV fistula, whereas peritoneal dialysis does not require it. Since you are working, you can undergo peritoneal dialysis. A trained medical professional can do it at home using automated peritoneal dialysis. It takes about 15 to 30 minutes and is done four times daily. A catheter will be inside your abdomen by a simple surgical procedure. It removes the accumulated toxins due to kidney failure. If dialysis is not performed, the accumulated toxins can result in death. Proper treatment can increase your lifetime.
