Urologist 's  Response
You are suffering from acid peptic disease. As your doctor has suggested you can take those medications. Since you are already on dialysis and your kidneys have been removed, these drugs will be removed from the body during dialysis. These medications are quite safe. Omeprazole, rantac, bismuth are all excreted principally by kidney s and now dialysis will do that job. They are not harmful to liver. However consult your nephrologist.
