In brief: Some but not perfect

For individuals that start dialysis due to uremic symptoms (symptoms of kidney failure), the first to go away is the nausea and vomiting.
That goes away the first or second session. Loss of appetite and itching quickly resolve next. Fatigue plagues many peolpe dialysis or not, and while many improve, few have complete freedom from fatigue once starting dialysis. Good luck.

In brief: Mostly yes

If you have symptoms from progressive chronic kidney disease and now have end stage kidney disease, you will feel better after dialysis if it is gradually initiated.
