hemodialyse to help damaged kidney ?

Hi, My fiance has high blood pressure and she just had one of her kidneys removed 15 days ago(aug13). Her doctor rightaway said the other kidney hasn't recovered (Due to the damage that the other kidney has done,it only works at the rate 13% ) so she has to do hemodialyse for 6 months or so, to help the remaining kidney recover...you can imagine we have been trough hell reading all about hemodialyse, kidney transplant etc. so is there any hope on hemodialyse to help the damaged kidney ? the Doctor said there is no need to look for a transplant yet but somehow i think hes Too Optimistic...that makes me scared.

To Correct myself she has Low blood pressure around 9/6 and the doctor told us she got this disease because she had got a bad flu a couple of years ago and the virus has done severe damage to the kidney....
