Buen Domingo: All About Dialysis: A Patient's Point of View
A Personalized Experience in Dialysis
This is a compilation of my Coping With ESKD blogs at domingobuen.blogspot.com from March 20, 2014 up to May 7, 2019 in chronological order. This is all about my actual dialysis experiences, writing essays and research work as a dialysis patient at the Hemo Dialysis Unit (HDU) of Gov. Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital (GCGMH). This book also include my know-how and achievements in running the Bohol Association of Hemo-Dialysis Patients and Watchers (BOASHEPAWA) as Chairman of the group. I started dialysis on September 29, 2011 and it has been almost eight years since then and I finally realized that it would be easier for me to share my experiences and articles about dialysis if I can print it in a book so that my fellow dialysis patients, doctors, nurses and those people who are interested about caring for their kidneys to avoid kidney disease can read and share it to more people.
This book aims to provide information and knowledge about the intricacies of dialysis, what is it all about and what to do and what not to do by the patients. I am not a medical practitioner, but through my personal experiences and continuous research about dialysis, I was able to know the major aspects about dialysis and share it to my co-dialysis patients through my dialysis blogs. This book will also show how I have coped with End Stage Kidney Disease with positive outlook in life, find ways to make my time useful through writing, research and still hopeful and courageous despite a life of pain and uncertainties.
