I went to hospital today, as the vein that was used for chemo 2 weeks ago has swollen and become tender in the last 3 days! I have been given hydrocortisone cream and after examining my veins, which are all showing signs of fatigue, it was decided that I should have a PICC line inserted.
I am a bit concerned but am relieved that the constant digging in my veins will stop. What I would like to know, is how have other ladies on this site got on with these lines? How long does the weekly flushing take, and do they get infected very often?
As always, many thanks for your advice, as always.
