Sick Call
Posted by Dodgy on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 9:29 PM

For those of you who may not be aware, our mate Armournut is crook. I contacted him this morning because I have not seen any posts from him for a while. Armournut has been suffering some serious kidney issues and will shortly begin a dialysis regime. I'm sure I speak for everyone in wishing him good health and a speedy recovery. Take care old mate.

Thanks Dodgy. I know where he's at. I've had two kidney transplants and combined 5 years of Dialysis. When you get in touch with him again, tell him if he needs someone to talk to let me know.

   Thank you all, it means alot. I know I'm not the first to have medical issues however this is the first for me and having support from peers makes things alittle less overwhelming.  Ferg has my number and e-mail as does a few other members. IF the PM function works I will share more prive contact info there. Thank you again to everybody here, I really do appreciate it.

I can completely relate to your predicament.  My kidneys started failing back in 2018.  I've been doing dialysis regularly since May of 2020 and have been doing home hemo since November of 2020.  Take it slow, take your time recovering from your dialysis sessions, and listen to your doctors.  Here's hoping this is an acute problem and you'll quickly recover and get back to normal.

SB33, thanks for the first hand insight, my docs are a bit "vauge" about what to expect. I will need a transplant for sure. I believe I will be on the list very soon since my fistula has been created, one week ago tomorrow, I have PKD, PolyCystic Kidney Disease, gentic and only "cure" is a transplant.

    Fox I tried the PM here but that function is still inop. I do appreciate the offer of support and maybe we can find a way to connect. Thank you again all for your support and kind words.

Armornut, so sorry to hear about your health issues. Best of luck and my prayers that the medical professionals can take care of this for you.
