What happens to CKD patients who can’t have dialysis or a kidney transplant because of a high risk of bleeding during surgery? What do they do?

I do not understand the bleeding problem.  In most cases, bleeding can be controlled with treatment.  In some cases, major surgery, such as transplant surgery may not be possible, but dialysis should still be possible.  I suggest you ask for further consultation with a nephrologist.
