Dear Sir, if the kidney damage has been chronic then she would need dialysis for her lifetime. The other alternative is kidney transplantation but most patients will need stabilisation on dialysis for sometime before being fit for transplantation. Please discuss the matter in detail with your nephrologist and decide accordingly. Take care.
