... Since this dialysis became a part of her life, she has more energy and appetite to enjoy her life again. However, she thinks that she will never be able to take a trip, even a short one by car because of this treatment which does require a lot of care for cleanness to avoid any infection. Is it possible for a peritoneal dialysis patient to travel as long as the patient can take his/her machine with the necessary supplies with him/her? I do not want her illness to imprison her in such a small radius of life style. If she can, what should she watch out for in order not to get infected during a trip?
Thank you for your time and help!
