|Not me. My chest hair is way more awesome.|
As far as hemo-dialysis accesses go, most people either have a port, which is a plastic tube, attached to their chest and it goes into your jugular vein. When I first when on dialysis, in an emergency situation, I had one of these in my chest. It was a bit awkward, and the speed at which the dialysis machine could run wasn't that fast. Eventually, I had an artereo-venous fistula put in my right arm. Basically, it's where my vein and artery were surgically attached to each other to make one large vessel that could handle the use of the large needles needed for dialysis. (15 guage needles.)
I've never done peritoneal dialysis, but from what I understand, a catheter is placed in your "stomach" where the peritoneal cavity in your body acts as a filter - dialysis fluid is added, and the blood is filtered in there, and then cycled out. Sounded a little too gross for me.
So, I live with this giant sausage of an access port on my arm, and it kind of gets in the way a bit. My arm can ache from it, and I try to wear long sleeves a lot to cover it. It's kind of unsightly, but my wife (God bless her) is very kind about it and often says "You should be proud of your fistula! It works amazingly well and it keeps you alive!" She's got such a great attitude about things, even when I'm ornery about it. (On any given day I complain about the thing: how I hate how it looks, feels, etc.)
