Are PD exchanges painful ?

Not at all !

A small minority of patients experience pain during infusion because of slightly low pH of the PD fluid. This can be overcome by using high pH PD fluid which is costlier.

However, if the pain is new onset and severe especially associated with cloudy drains, do contact your Nephrologist immediately.
