Good afternoon everyone.
Today was my 2nd treatment. It took 2 attempts to get the cannula in, wasn't bothered by this. However the site ultimately became so very painful I cried and was given paracetamol and a heat pad which alleviated the pain for oooh 20 minutes with, luckily, only 20 minutes til the end.
It was almost exactly the same place as last time - I expected it to move up the arm / vein.
And it was right next to if not on top of a ganglion at my wrist (had it cut out aged 15 but as it kept returning and was hardly ever any bother didn't go down that route again)
Would either of the above explain the pain do you think?
Has anyone else had pain that was explained with a different reason, please?
I will ask for it to be moved next time, if indeed I don't opt for a picc line which I don't quite feel the need for at this time.
Than you in advance as always xx🌹
