My dad has kidney disease which was discovered about 3 years ago when he had a heart attack and had to have stints put in. He is refusing dialysis. He is showing symptoms like falling asleep in the middle of the day at various times and today I learned that his hands and arms are severly swollen and starting to crack. Has anyone out there ever known someone who was like this and refused dialysis? The doctors are telling my mom just enough info to placate her. I want to know ALL the signs to look for. Thanks.
