Hello leroy. (that's my dad's middle name, but family calls him that). ;)

Quite frankly, I like it. Don't "love" it, but I like it better than hemo. Been on it for 2 years.

I was on hemo for about 5 months after getting diagnosed, and I felt like crap after many sessions. PD offers me more flexibility to go back to work (not having to go to a unit three times a week), and basically allows me to take control of my own treatment. That was important to me to have, since sometimes it feels like this is taking control of my life (which in some cases, it is, but in others it is not).

So good luck in your training. 8) :wink: Peace!!
