When to start and questions about exercise
I'll be needing dialysis soon and I'm leaning toward PD. Can you tell me if starting on PD before it's absolutely necessary would have any effect--positive or negative--on preserving remaining kidney function? Also, I do exercises for back pain and most of them involve the abdominal muscles. Would the catheter or the effects of the placement surgery interfere with doing abdominal exercises? And finally, are there any types of catheter or placement surgery that involve less tunneling or other interference with the abdominal wall?
Thank you very much for your help!
