When my physician informed me I had kidney illness, I wasn’t conscious of simply how severe it was. Two years later, although, I handed out and awoke within the emergency room, the place docs stated I used to be experiencing each kidney failure and coronary heart failure.
Shortly after, I began dialysis. Happily, I used to be in a position to do in-home dialysis and stay energetic in my group and my church. Now, even after receiving a transplant, I’ve discovered my calling as an advocate for dialysis sufferers, and I’m captivated with serving to others by way of their remedies.
Over time, I’ve observed how mentally, bodily, and emotionally taxing dialysis may be, particularly for folks answerable for coordinating all of their appointments, drugs, and extra by themselves. After I did dialysis, I went by way of a number of notebooks simply to maintain observe of all the pieces.
A brand new invoice in Congress known as the BETTER Kidney Care Act will help. It could arrange a nationwide system for care coordination and make it simpler for dialysis sufferers’ docs to coordinate in a means that’s finest for every affected person. I’m hoping Mississippi’s Representatives in Congress, together with Consultant Trent Kelly, will acknowledge how a lot this might assist sufferers and assist the invoice.
