Overview
More than 400,000 people in the United States undergo kidney dialysis. For many, the prospect of a regular appointment with a dialysis machine seems like the end of life itself.. But that reaction couldn't be more wrong. In Dialysis Without Fear, psychiatrist and dialysis patient Dr. Daniel Offer joins with his wife, Marjorie Kaiz Offer, and daughter, Susan Offer Szafir, to reveal how life can be lived--and lived well--on dialysis. Drawing on his long career as a medical expert and more than seven years of experience as a patient, Dr. Offer convincingly dispels the misconceptions surrounding this treatment, releaving how to most dialysis patients can travel, work, and continue to partake in life's joys and celebrations. But the fears and hardships can be quite real, and Dr. Offer brings his years as a psychiatrist to bear as he provides practical advice on how patients can overcome them. He walks the reader through each step of dialysis, explains different types of live treatment, examines the pros and cons of a transplant, and discusses side effects. Dialysis, he notes, affects the entire family; his own wife and daughter provide realistic insights into how relatives can cope and thrive together. Along the way, they provide a treasure trove of tips on adapting to the new diet, traveling overseas, and adjusting working hours. The Offer's also relate inspiring success stories, sharing the humor, courage, and triumphs of real families.
