5 times 💥💉💉💉💉💉💥🙆🏼♀️🤷♀️😿I am not whining nor complaining but there is a problem .
Today I was a human PINCUSHION the tech and 2 nurses had multiple tries for a needle to be pushed further in my veins . They said but it did not want to go further though trying carefully . Each time it recjected the IV needle .
This is a continual problem for moi , for them to add ported for CT fluid , to be put in . My veins kept rejecting this and it hurt and burned as they tried to push it further in .The tech said it happens matter of factly when I left .
I yelped like a wounded pup !
Actually 4 on my arm and a 5th needle with port line attached on my wrist . It hurt so much bc the veins were not straight they said . I need a HUG . Glad my daughter drove me especially afterwards .
And I do not want to say anything to the GPO or they may stop all together .
ouch! I feel your pain….every time I need an IV I have multiple pokes also.
it is no fun at all.
you must have ‘valve'y veins'. it sounds like they get it in, but cannot advance the catheter. I think sometimes our veins just say: ‘NO MORE’. ha ha ha
good for you for being a trooper…it doesn't happen too often, but if venous access cannot be accessed tests could be cancelled, so I get that you are fearful of saying too much to the provider. I don't know that you can have a permanent line put in for CT scans - the contrast solution may not be a good match. hopefully you don't need further IVs for a while!
hang in there girl!
the info they get from the procedures is the important stuff for you. crossing my fingers that everything comes up roses! 🌹
hugs friend 🤗
You certainly do need a hug, I had that same problem during my last CT scan, I think it is more from the lack of experience. My whole scan was difficult. I've had many CT scans and never a problem. They were rushing to catch up because of covid.
I'm sure you will have fewer problems next time. Good luck with your medical issues in the future. All the best!
