Each person is unique and unrepeatable. However, listening to what those who are going through the same disease have to tell us is important to overcome obstacles, ask questions and feel the company, not only from the staff, but also from our dialysis colleagues in Argentina.
YOUR FIRST DIALYSIS SESSION: "It was very fast, I didn't have much time to think about it, I didn't want to know anything about this treatment, but today I realized that it is something that does not modify my days as much as I thought"
HOW YOU FEELED WHEN YOU GIVEN THE DIAGNOSIS “When they gave me the diagnosis, I didn't know what to do. At the time I did not react well, but with the help of my doctor I was able to understand that it was the best for me and my health. "
WHAT WOULD YOU ADVISE A PATIENT STARTING THEIR TREATMENT: "I advise you not to be afraid, with this treatment you have to take good care of yourself, but it does not mean that you cannot continue with your life."
TREATMENT: “Today I feel very good with the treatment, I have the support of my daughter and my brother. My dialysis partners are like my family and that is very important to me. "
MEDICAL SUPPORT: “When I come to dialyze I feel calm, I trust my doctor and the nurses, who know me a lot and are always attentive to what I can do to improve my treatment. I appreciate it because I can come home and see my granddaughter every day. "
