Nephrologist 's  Response
hi manali,
dialysis is an option to get rid of ur waste in the blood. there are different modalities of dialysis. you can consider them if u r present dialysis program is not good. transplantation is other option but there are lot of things before u get a transplanted kidney. u need to see a transplant nephrologist ( not a transplant surgeon) to get this checked out. you are young and u might be a good candidate for it...let me know how things went
