I'm really pleased to hear that you are doing better with how much you drink. It is obviously making a difference given that the nurses are nagging you less.

Nowadays I try my best to stick to my bottle, and not drink too much extra. I also have to be extra careful during the weekends!

So far so good, my weight never exceeds 4kgs now. I try to keep it below 4kgs. But there is still room for improvement!

The nurses nag me much less now!

Fantastic News!!!!!

My dialyzer these days can pass the processor even after 12 times! This means that my diet & fluid control is improving!

Those days, my dialyzer will fail even after 7 times!

And I am finally on my way to losing weight! My dry weight may be decreasing! I will keep you posted!

Good news! I was below my dry weight on Wednesday and Friday. On Monday, for the first time in ages, I put on less than 3kg on a Monday!

If I keep this up, it means I'm finally starting to lose weight!

Thanks, Patti!

I am sticking to my pre-measured bottle of water from now on! That's how I achieved my success yesterday!

To make my water even more of a treat, I added some fresh lemon slices and I have a special bottle that will keep my drink cold for at least 36 hours if I add ice cubes! It was very expensive but it's sooo worth it because now I will always have iced water wherever I go! And in Malaysia's hot climate, that is sooo nice!!!

An update! I made my dry weight!!!! Whooo Hooo!

I only gained 1.2kg yesterday, which means added to Monday's 1.5kg, it was only a 2.7kg gain!

That's doable! I am sooooo happy!

Instead of panicking, reach out (call) your doctor or nurses and ask them what is their plan if no water is available.

This is really not the forum for these medical questions.

Isn't this a question you should be asking trained medical professionals in charge of your care??

Nobody here can offer medical advice of this level. We could offer to listen to your fears, but it will not compare to talking to an actual Doctor immediately.

I went to dialysis this morning. I was delayed because one of the covers of the new dialyzer popped off and I didn't notice, resulting in a 15 minute delay.

To make matters worse, I was already overloaded with 500g, then the head nurse reduced my target by 400g, so that means I am already owing 900g without question.

Then, the unthinkable happened! The water company cut our water supply! Resulting in me finishing 37 minutes early! Which meant that I am now owing 1.5kg in total through no fault of my own other than the 500g I was overloaded with initially!

Now I am so worried about what will happen to me if the water supply doesn't return by this Wednesday! Does this mean that I will die? An elderly gentleman has already been admitted to hospital because of water overload! Will the same happen to me?
