I am 39 and have been on PD for about 3 months. On the whole it has vastly improved how I feel and other than drainage pain at when I first started and some difficulty with the catheter getting lodged where it wouldn’t drain it’s been pretty tolerable. However, in the last month I have been having significant liver area pain, and bloating. When I’m empty, I look like I’ve swallowed a watermelon. The only time this has been alleviated is the week when I had my period, and a few days after. Painkillers aren’t helping and it’s making taking a deep breath or standing up straight near impossible. Lying flat on my back makes the pain recede to some degree. I have had an ultrasound but it shows nothing abnormal. Can low protein or any other PD related thing cause pain like this? Its sharp and burning and constant and it’s ticking me off.
