SOGGY VIENS

I got this slight problem if anyone can help last week when I was in hospital I had to have 8 venflons in in 4 days they either just stopped working or were comming out the drs and nurses tried everything to keep them working or in situ. This also happened at christmas when I was in I had 10 venflons in in 6 days the dr said it could be the hydrocortisone causing it but ive never in all my time of having asthma heard of anything like this happening. Am I just a strange individual or has any of you peeps had this happen. Many Thanks xxxxxx

  • My veins have had a battering over the years.

    Steroids make them fragile and repeated stabbing by venflons scars them and the scar tissue can make it difficult to get one in a good place. Then they start using less quality veins which don't last long because they are smaller or in an awkward place.
