  • Sorry to hear you are in hospital. Drinking plenty of water before the vampire comes helps. They like digging for gold......

    The Specialist Respiratory Nurse wondered why they didn't put a pick line in last time I was in. I have never had one. It is fun trying to relax while they dig.

    My sister tells me that on children they use an ointment which helps show up the veins.

  • Tried the water drinking don't help y gains so small and they keep collapsing so they don't last long or there so small and deep they don't last

  • So sorry you have to go thru this !

    Hope they find stuff they can fix .😘

  • Tracye, so sorry you have to go thru this! Hope they find stuff they can fix !!!!😘

  • Hi I'm ok just fed upwith all the needles another new cannula again tonight as the other one went again had to get the doc to to took her two attempts as one of the gains popped again but I'm ok got a heavy feeling in the chest tonight but I book take a nebuliser before bed. Hope u doing ok X

  • Just a thought here seems you have little veins that run away when they feel the approach of a needle. Just like mine. One time last year when I had given a lot of blood samples the phlebotomist had a problem and was just about to give up when it went ok but she said if it hadn't gone in at time she would have used a needle they use for babies. So, it might be worth mentioning this. Having said that when I go to Manchester to the National Aspergillosis Centre I find the nurses there have no problems with getting blood out of me - I wonder why that is?

  • Yea it's horrible have so much trouble getting the vains up , I now having problems with heavy feeling in my chest got to try the nebs more and c the doc. Hope u ok have a good day
