The doctors have recommended that we explore which type of dialysis my husband will select, hemodialysis vs. peritoneal dialysis. He regularly goes to the Mikvah and would like to continue doing so. Any input from men in similar situation would be appreciated

Thank you so much for your reply. It is very supportive to know that there are people willing to share their experience and help us through tough spots if they arise.
The doctor is promoting transplant, and recommending going on the transplant list, second choice is peritoneal at home... We are hoping the "fun" won't start for a while. Kol Tov, Gut Voch
