What do I need to do after I go home?

HD vascular access 2


When you go home you will need to check your fistula daily for a “buzzing” sensation known as a “thrill”. This “thrill” is caused by the high flow of blood through the vein, and is a sign that your fistula is working well.

You may notice a small amount of blood visible on the dressing and/or some bruising around the wound site. This is normal.

Your wound may be tender for a few days after operation. Any pain can be relieved with regular painkillers.
