After hubby's initial surgery, we went to a check up a week later with the dialysis nurse. She took off the dressing and taught me how to take care of it and redress it. She gave us some supplies including these little plastic cups that I was to use for the washing solution and then wash and use again. Sounds simple, but it became something I would forget to wash and then have to stop what I was doing and run out of the bedroom and wash it.
Simple solution - disposable dixie cups. Yes, I realize that there is an added expense by using something like dixie cups, but when there is so much to do with the exit site, the dialysis set up, and life in general, I found this little change a great relief. We purchased the store brand which was much cheaper, we use one a night and in the trash it goes.
