I had my first Taxol treatment last Tuesday and my 2nd one will be this coming Monday. I didn't opt for a picc line yet but the nurse inserted the IV in my hand rather harshly compared to the A/C treatments. It hardly bothered me before. I also noticed a little red bruise on my hand afterwards, which has not healed yet - looks like a blood blister. Anyway, I am wondering if I should request the picc line for the rest of the treatments. I have 11 to go and don't want to leave marks on my hand from the IV, Is the picc line worth doing? Anyone have any issues with it? Does it hurt to get it inserted? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
