Vein problems

My veins in my hands  had almost all collapsed when I finished chemo in April 2011.  There was one “useful” vein left and this was used for my last few treatments.  It became very swollen and sore and is now like  a varicous vein that people experience in their legs. It is a particular problem at my wrist area and very painful to touch. Not sure what to do about it. Anyone else had similar problems?
