i am on PD dialysis is more than year: exactly 1year and three months. I have pain every night since I am using PD machine. After first surgery I have mostly drain pain. Eventually a year after using PD machine (May 2017) I have met with surgeon. Surgeon told me that the way I have explained my pain, looks like my catheter moving and should be make static. Surgeon however, did not promise that I would get rid of pain completely. I was not happy with this response, but I have decided to do a surgery.
The second surgery was on 6/19/2017… Form the beginning I felt insignificant pain on right side of lower abdominal, but then it become mush worst: I felt pain not only during end of drain cycle, but also during fill cycle and after that. I have also started to have pain just walking during the day. I have decided to visit gynecologist. Gynecologist suggests ultra sound and then cats scan. Nothing was wrong with, however cats scan result said this:
“There is moderate amount of free fluid noted in the cul-de-sac with dialysis catheter noted in the right lower quadrant with the tip noted adjacent to the uterus”.
Does this description explains that the such catheter placement can cause PD dialysis pain?
Is any way to exactly determine the correct placement of catheter without doing number of surgeries? I have two for now with no success.
Thanks for response
