picc line

I had an appointment today to put in a picc line and they could not do it.


Is it worth trying again or should i try and manage without it?

Hi katherine-h

As you posted a little while ago you may have found your answer?

I would certainly recommend you try again - and if necessary get a different type of port installed.

It will make your and your vein’s life much easier!

Much will depend on your type of chemo. The effect on your veins is cumulative, hence it might well be worth trying again. Keep your arm warm, drink as much as you can and massage upwards towards your heart, when you can.
Hoping tou are coping.
