Hi everyone
I’m new to this site and to doing capd
3 days ago I started my capd dialysis and all seems to be going fine apart from slight pain when draining .. but this morning I noticed my testicals and penis has stated to swell imhaving no pain at all there it’s just swollen I had the same thing happened to me while I was in hospital a few months ago but eventually subsided ... do you think it could be connected to the capd I’m a bit concerned about leakage of fluid into my scrotum but I’m not loosing any fluid on the drain I’m putting in 2ltr and always draining around 2300 ml -2400 ml out any advice would be much appreciated
Thank you

It does sound like a small tear in the peritoneum. As ever, you should contact your renal support team.

I'm on CAPD and was warned that if this happened I should contact them.

Hope you get it resolved soon.

Defiantly let the unit know.. They are professionals, I seem to remember having something like that, and at the time it scared the hell out of me.Balls like a grapefruit!


Good luck..
