What does his nephrologist say? He really should be starting dialysis. This will help to make him feel better. Was it a sudden decline in kidney function? It is easier to make these dialysis decisions when you've had some time to ponder what options you want to take. All in all, dialysis isn't a lot of fun, but it's do-able.
