The pain could be a sign of inflammation or infection. Please contact the office of the doctor who did your procedure for advice, or an appointment if needed.

Were you given any information about protecting the arm with the fistula? If not, this link provides several tips: http://www.renalinfo.com/uk/treatment/end_stage_kidney_failure/haemodialysis/fistula.html
