1. DO NOT drain your belly too well, for you shall suffer the agonizing cramps of gas that expands to fill the void.
2. DO NOT drain your belly too well, for you shall suffer the agonizing tickling and almost-pain of the catheter not floating any more.
3. DO NOT drain your belly too well, for you will have gas and fluid fighting for the limited space in your abdomen during the subsequent fill, something that can get really painful really fast.
4. DO pay attention to the fill volume, for if you fill more than required by your prescription, you will feel like a VERY bloated snake (where you would normally feel like a mildly bloated snake).
5. DO pay attention to fill volume, for if you fill more than required by your prescription, you will have no desire nor indeed room for food or drink, if you had any before.Well, there are other things too - minor things lilke "follow infection control procedures", "always wash hands for 2-3 minutes with antibacterial soap before every exchange", "don't touch the exposed end of your catheter with anything except a Betadine swab or catheter cap with Betadine sponge", "don't get constipated", etc. Thing is, in PD training, they go over all that - din it into your head, in fact. The things I have posted above? Only experience will ever tell you that. Learn from my mistakes, do!
