I had a contrast dye scan last week - after four attempts they went into a vein in my foot. Although they successfully got the cannula in twice in veins in my arms, I couldn't tolerate the pain. I have bloods done every three months for my haematology appointment. It is getting more difficult to draw blood from the veins in my arms/hands. I am well hydrated and try to keep warm before my appointments. Any suggestions?
