Hello everyone, need some advice. Hope you're all feeling ok and coping in this damp weather.
I got home yesterday from the RBH after a 10 day stint to clear my lung infection with intensive IV AB's. After a ct scan I was told my collapsed lung had re inflated!! Yay! V happy about that. But the pain in my left wrist, hand and arm is quite intense, it's like a throbbing, stinging pain that pain killers don't touch! I am black and blue and full of holes as the cannulas kept having to be replaced due to my veins collapsing constantly. I had 10 fitted and 15 failed attempts! Both hands and arms are affected but only bad pain in left. I was on 3 different abs one being fluoxcilillin which was the trouble maker as it kept burning my veins which then caused my hand to become inflamed and so rejecting the cannula. Has anyone else had this problem and what can I do until I go to my doctor on Monday.
Many thanks in anticipation Kissi x
