Back in the CAPD

Went into hospital this morning for my first CAPD exchange since last Tuesday’s operation to replace my peritoneal catheter. Nicely enough, the exchange was quick (unlike before the catheter was replaced) and painless.

This now means I’m off haemodialysis and back on peritoneal dialysis, which means it takes 30 minutes, 4 times a day at home or at work, rather than 4 hours, 3 times a week, in hospital.

The nurses have said I have to be back in on Friday, when they’ll increase my amount of fluid from 1 litre to 2. Hopefully I’ll also be booked in for Automatic (overnight) dialysis in the next few weeks too, which should gradually nudge my life back into some regular pattern.

Until then, I’ll be back into work tomorrow for the first time since in 2 weeks. Perfect timing too, what with the midday group games in the World Cup now finished.

See, I told you this wouldn’t be interesting. Now go away.
