Doctors have been warning my FIL for years that he was headed for dialysis, and finally that day has arrived - they want him to start asap. He has type 2 diabetes and a host of related health problems.
I know what dialysis is in a technical sense, but what does this mean for my FIL? Is this an end stage treatment or something he could do for many years??How will this limit his mobility? - I think he has to go in to a clinic for it, rather than doing home dialysis.
He just found out yesterday, so I didn't want to drill him with all my questions yet.
