I am an LPN caring for a dialysis patient in a nursing home setting. I am familiar with some of the symptoms of trouble in between dialysis sesswions such as increased confusion. I have a couple of questions. #1. Will a three times a week dialysis patient be able to urinate? #2. Will the bladder continue to give the sensation of having to urinate? What is apt to cause pain in the region of the bladder ( no distention).?
