I am new to this site> I am a PD patient. Overtime when ever I change my bandage on exit site I see a blood stain. It is not too much. But it is happening everyday. I showed it to my nephrologist and the surge. They want me to ignore it unless the bleeding is too much. But I am so much worried about it. Does anybody have this problem? Please help me. Thank you
Talk to your PD nurse. Is the skin red or swollen? Any other drainage? If so it could be an infection. Are you securing the tube where it can't move around or pull against your skin? If it is a new PD catheter, it may just be in the healing process, but if it has been over 4 weeks you need to meet with your nurse for an assessment.
