What are they tapping? Ascitic fluid?
It is likely the doctors are very aggressively removing fluid from her body to make her fluid accumulation disappear. Try increasing the post dialysis weight a kg and the pain may just disappear. If the pain is in the last 30 min or so, fixing the dry weight below required is the likely cause.
