Hi Lubna, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
If Doctor's are saying it, you should be willing for a Kidney Transplant. Your Husband is suffering from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). A kidney transplant is an operation that places a healthy kidney in his body. The transplanted kidney takes over the work of the two kidneys that failed and he will no longer need dialysis.
During a transplant, the surgeon places the new kidney in the lower abdomen and connects the artery and vein of the new kidney to the artery and vein. Often, the new kidney will start making urine as soon as the blood starts flowing through it. But sometimes it takes a few weeks to start working. The transplanted kidney comes from donors who have already died. Few has to be gotten from a living family member. The wait for a new kidney can be long. Once the transplant is done, he will have to take drugs to keep his body from rejecting the new kidney for the rest of his life.

You can come down to India and Visit any of the Metropolitan cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai or Kolkata where the Kidney Transplant Facility will be able.

I wish him Good Health, Take Care.
