Hi ladies I'm on weekly Taxol and today had my 10th out of 18, my problem is this, I have chemo every Friday all being well, there is a lovely chemo nurse who is training and every time she tries to put the cannula into a vein it never never works, today she tried 4 times then called another nurse who put it in first time, all the other chemo nurse put the cannula in first time! I don't really want to complain but my hands are getting really sore and this nurse keeps pushing me to speak to my oncologist about other options, my problem is that it only seems to be her that can't get a vein all the other nurses can, I'm sure when she see's mecoming she must think oh no not her again, because I know I do!! She is soo nice and caring but I do feel she feels guilty and I feel cross, do I speak to the one of the sisters on te ward? Any advise welcome.
Wishing everyone a good weekend
