Few days a go I was doing a daytime dwell on PD and noticed a protruding swelling round near the incision of where I had my catheter fitted. It was also sore and tender to touch. Turns out I have a hernia and the incision has split open, causing my stomach to protrude out. I was informed that this was quite common amongst PD patients but mainly older ones. (I'm only 26) does anyone have experience with this? I've been told I gotta have surgery to fix it, but I'm worried about the recovery of it all. I suffered a lot of complications having the PD catheter fitted in the first place so it's installed some kind of fear in me that I might have to go through with it again. Can anyone give me an insight to it all?
