I’m a PD patient and my question is that every time I have a drain, I’m in severe pain my lower stomach. Is there something wrong?

In many cases, the pain is related to the catheter being sucked into the peritoneal lining of your abdomen.  In this case, I would slow the flow out of your abdomen until the pain clears.  If the pain persists, then you may need further testing and consultation with your nephrologist.
