Hi All, sorry to bang on but in case it helps anyone else.
Today I asked Macmillan about blood clots. It seems it could have already been there before the chemo and accompanying pain, in line with cancer treatment making us susceptible to blood clots.
This means it could be said that the chemo did not cause it.
As for the pain during chemo it could be any of a number of things, being cold, a reaction to the fe and c, sensitive skin, irritated veins.
I have some peace of mind knowing it wasn't necessarily inept cannulation tho I am Still going to complain as I still feel the nurses did not do a good job of taking care of me by failing to keep me warm and or explaining why I was in so much pain.
Roll on my picc line!! 👊
