Judith, I hope you don't mind if I take a stab at this one.
Doing home dialysis certainly won't harm your chances of getting a transplant and it may help your chances if by doing dialysis at home you stay healthier. Many people who were on PD or home hemodialysis have had kidney or kidney-pancreas transplants. If you haven't already been evaluated for a transplant, talk with your doctor and the transplant program where your insurance will pay. Most transplant programs do not require a referral to talk with you. You be evaluated now and be added to the deceased donor transplant "waiting list" when your glomerular filtration rate (GFR) drops below 20. One of the factors that is considered in determining who gets a kidney besides how well the donated kidney "matches" you is time on the waiting list. If your evaluation shows you're a candidate for a transplant and you have a living donor, it's even more likely to get a transplant before doing dialysis since surgery on you and your donor can be scheduled to fit what's best for the two of you.
BTW, here's a website where you can find data on transplant programs in the U.S., including the number of transplants that they do each year, how their success rates compare to expected rates, and the average waiting time for a kidney from the deceased donor list.
