In brief: Ab Pain
There are a few complications assoicated with peritoneal dialysis.
They range form mild symptoms such as constipation or a bloated feeling. However there are more serious side effects like peritonitis (infection in the peritoneum) omentum wrapping (where parts of omentum wrap around the catheter) that require immediate medicla attention.

In brief: Mild to severe
Peritonitis is an infection.
It usually responds to treatment when caught early but when it is not promptly treated it can cause sepsis, shock, and death. This is a real concern. Call your doctor at the first sign of trouble, usually abdominal pain.
