Just curious, how does he KNOW his quality of life will suffer to the point of giving up? yeah, its a life changing event BUT I certainly have not lost my quiality of life. I do dialysis everynight. Just because family didnt do well on dialysis does not mean he won't. And what about trying to get a transplant? Yeah, he will have bad days but after he has gotten used to dialysis and its schedule the bad days will turn into more and more good days until he has mostly good days with a few bad days mixed in.
I would be more than happy to talk to him about PD if he is interested.
