my fistular is in my forarm and it is pretty curvey. I think from having it for so long, it wasn’t alway that way.
I have one spot where the needle goes in sideways.
No one really showed me how to do it. I was just sitting in the center on night waiting to be put on the machine and got tired of waiting so I just decided to put my needles in. When the tech came over I though he was going to faint. He asked who put those in I told him I did so I would be ready when he got there to put me on. He was all upset you should have waited for some one to be with you and all that.
Most of the techs like to get me on there shift now because I come in and set all my settings on the machine and put in my own needles. I have put my self on the machine a few times and have also been taking my self off and pulling my needles. So they really don’t have to do too much for me when I’m there.
That’s why they figured I would be good with the nxstage.
I plan on using one soon. I just hope I can get a BH going as it is hard enough to keep moving the needles around now at 3x a week I can’t imagine if I had to figure where to stick 6 times a week :roll:
