My husband has been on PD for about 9 months, and he just mentioned that his initial drain hurts terribly. Is this common? His Dr and nurse don't seem to think it's a big deal. I see him clenching the armrest of his recliner every night - seems like a big deal to me.
And if anyone could explain the initial drain? Why? Any leftover liquid from the night before would have been absorbed by the body throughout the day... why drain what is empty?
