A-V fistula surgery often fails, most commonly due to thin veins. There is a new procedure, where a venous graft is used to create A-V fistula. So thats one option, you can talk to the surgeon regarding this.
Transplant is a good option, depends the age and condition of patient, location/city/state where it is done.
In india, if the donor is a family member (blood type and tissue has to be matched for tht), its about 3-4 lacs.
