Synopsis

This practical and inspiring book will give you the confidence to live a full and rewarding life. Drawing on the experiences of a number of very different people, from all walks of life and ages and family situations with kidney failure, these shared personal accounts celebrate the fullness of life that people living with kidney failure can, and do, achieve.



Sharing the first-hand experiences of others, the book covers the issues surrounding initial diagnosis and treatment, whether peritoneal or haemodialysis, the continuation of treatment, and the pros and cons of transplantation. There is extensive coverage of lifestyle choices, about work and leisure, relationships with partners and family, as well as the hospital kidney unit.



There is useful, practical advice on how to cope with crises and deal with problems, and the book shares other people's experiences. There are also appendices on financial aspects, medical and benefit help, prescriptions, mortgages and other matters.
