Have you tried using the Edit Text & Images tool?
If you have Adobe Acrobat DC, this should work, with previous versions of Acrobat it depends on how much gets reformatted when you add new text, so you will have to check on a case by case basis.
Was it converted from MS Word? If so, a work around might be to re-PDF the Word doc (giving it a different name) and dragging the corrected page(s) from this new PDF into the original PDF, and then deleting the page(s) it is replacing. You might still need to clean up a few links but hopefully not as many.
I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

Just use the Replace Pages command... It will maintain all the links (and other meta-objects like fields, comments, etc.) in their place.
