I have PKD, end stage, and I have been waking up with puffy eyes for at least 2 months and now my face and neck are swollen so bad that my chin is not definable. Is this because of the kidney disease or because I haven’t had dialysis in over a month?

I suspect that your swelling is due to both your chronic kidney disease (CKD) related to your Polycystic Kidney Disease (PCKD) and the lack of dialysis.  I suggest that you contact your nephrologist for proper care.
