Good morning. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hemodialysis is a procedure with the main function of turning off kidney function which is usually to be used in conditions of end-stage chronic kidney failure, acidic blood conditions (acidosis), toxic conditions in the body (toxins). The type of hemodialysis that occurs is
Catheter double lumen (double lumen catheter) in the shoulder vein
AV shunt that is mounted on the blood vessels of the hands
Related to your condition, it is possible to use an AV shunt where the swelling that occurs in the arm area and the location of the injection can be caused by several things, namely
Normal swelling due to suboptimal withdrawal of blood, depressed position during HD
Inflammation in the area of the blood vessels is usually accompanied by a swollen palpable heat, looks red, and usually very painful to the touch. Also usually more painful when pressed.
To know this for certain whether as a normal or inflammatory condition, you should consult your condition again with the doctor who treats you. If there is severe pain, looks pale, feels very painful, weak to be moved should be consulted immediately to prevent worsening. Some things you can do first are
Compress with cold water to reduce pain and inflammation

If the pain is disturbing, you can use anti-pain medications such as paracetamol and ibuprofen.
