A Sligo man who is waiting on a second kidney transplant has said that while you are on dialysis your life is “on hold”.
44 years-old Brian Stewart from Sea View Park in Sligo town is back on dialysis for the second time in his life after the failure of a kidney that he had received.
That transplant had given a new lease of life for 10 years but now he is back to a regime of having to be hooked up to a dialysis machine at Sligo Hospital for four hourss, three days a week.
Brian, who spoke to the Sligo Weekender while actually on dialysis, said: “After this you would be fairly fatigued.”
