Are you suited for PD?
If you have had major abdominal surgeries*, you may not be able to do PD. If you are a large person, it may be hard to get enough dialysis with PD. Have a hernia? It must be fixed before you start PD. Sometimes PD can cause a hernia. If so, there is a way for you to keep doing PD while it is fixed. Apart from those health issues, the most vital factor in whether you can do PD is how much you want to do it.
*Having a baby by C-section, a kidney transplant, or a hernia fixed does not count as “major.”
