NO WAY. NO not ME!
Every patient has a medical history;
especially people who are dependent on
dialysis. Further analysis of their history
often reveals dialysis was not needed if
only they had used their medications
properly. However, in some cases dialysis
is inevitable, many times it can be
preventable or at least delayed for a
longer time. This because of several
reasons as evidenced in there short,
practical and honest stories in which
people show ignorance, pride,
nonchalant personality, medication
noncompliance, denial and more…
Almost all these people are shocked
when they get the news, that they need
urgent dialysis. Their reaction: Disbelief,
anxiety, fear, uncertainty, thinking about
their work, their family, their life… many
questions will cross their mind.
“Syslin, will you leave me alone? I feel
good, eat well, and perform well. With
three women and six children I have

children for me.” he jokes.
“Too many X-rays aren’t good for your
body and furthermore…” replied the
“Stop doc… it’s my body. I want to do the
MRI!” she said impatiently.
“Absolutely not, doctor. It never
bothered me. What do you mean… one
kidney?” Startled and full of questions,
Chapo looked at the doctor but didn’t
have the energy to speak further.
