Unfortunately for me I've had a trip to critical care with an asthma attack and with that came numerous arterial lines/attempts. In the end I had one in my right foot and right wrist(at different times of course!) but had multiple attempts at getting one in my left wrist. My foot and right wrists have healed well and apart from a bit of bruising are fine however my left wrist is killing, its black and blue to nearly half at down my arm, is slightly swollen and hurts to move.
Has anyone else experienced this? I came out of CCU over a week ago so would have expected it to have improved. I keep trying to make doctors look at it but the best I get is a sympathetic look and oh that must hurt (you don't say!!). I'm pretty sure it's not infected... I'm just looking for some helpful advice on how to care for it/ has anyone experienced this before?
Hope everyone is staying well and enjoying the sunshine!
