Hello Anon, a diagnosis of kidney failure is life-changing. It's important for your you, your dad and your family to learn as much as you can about kidney failure and how it is treated. You can find a lot of information about this on the American Kidney Fund's website -- start here (cut and paste this address into your brower): http://www.kidneyfund.org/kidney-disease/kidney-failure/#treatment_of_kidney_failure . If your dad does begin dialysis, it's important that he get off to a strong start -- it can make a huge difference in how well he does. This link will take you to FIRST30, which gives practical information and a checklist to help get through first 30 days of dialysis treatment: http://www.kidneyfund.org/kidney-disease/new-to-dialysis/ . Take it one day at a time as your dad and your family adjust to life with kidney failure. We wish you all the best.
