Anyone got any experience off or knowledge of Peritonial Dialysis and Hernia’s
My father is a 79 year old gentleman who is on Peritonial Dialysis.
He has been admitted to hospital earlier this week with suspected Hernia problem - i dont know at this stage what type of hernia he has but before he was admitted he had lot of pain and was vomiting and his naval/belly button was protruded (like you would see in photographs of children who are malnurished) so not sure if that can help identify the type of Hernia
The surgical team are considering surgery but have not made a decision yet and while they are assessing his case - he has been taken off peritonial dialysis and isnt been allowed solids and was only allowed to drink clear liquids yesterday
What are the surgical approaches available ?
If he has surgery for the Hernia - will he be back to go back onto peritonial dialysis at any time in the future or will he have to go onto haemo dialysis and never will be able to go back onto Peritonial Dialysis?
