Duration of procedure ? When can I take discharge?
1 hour procedure time. Discharge next day morning.

You can attend your work from next day of surgery without any discomfort.
When can dialysis be started from AV graft?
After 2 weeks of surgery.
Can it get blocked? What is the solution for blockage?
Yes it can get blocked due to low blood pressure during dialysis & few other reasons. But it can be opened up again by doing AV Fistula angioplasty.
