tape used for peritoneal dialysis making sore

Anyone have any suggestions for helping my mother not be so sore from all the tape she has to use to tape down her peritoneal dialysis catheter on her stomach? She is getting sore already and she has only done this a couple weeks...

The nurse tells her she is using the best medical tape available.

Re: tape used for peritoneal dialysis making sore

When I was on PD I used to tape my canula up all the time but I switched to just taping it up at night and letting the thing hang down my pants during the day. Perhaps if she could use the tape less then she will not get as sore.

My husband folded his and then wrapped a rubber band around it.
