i mentioned it to my chemo dr when i had my 3 months check up recently.
she sent me for a scan that day incase it was a blood clot, but nothing showed up.
said she didnt know why i had this pain in my picc arm.
since then ive googled it and have found out ( if its true ) that you can get vein damage after the lines removed... guy did say when i had the scan that i had very fine veins.
strange really but i dont remember at the time that the nurse had any problem removing the picc....
so i still dont know why im getting this pain 🤷♀️🤷♀️
hi ho at least my treatment is finished.
hoping you are still doing ok ?? Mini mad xx 💖💖
Hi mini mad,
I'm from the Oct'17 group and I had a PICC line when I had chemo. I'm sorry that you've had pain since you've had the line removed, I don't remember experiencing any myself. Perhaps it might be worth giving your chemo unit a ring about it? x
thought i'd pop this question on here before i go to bed.
I'm from the June 2019 chemo thread and i seem to recall that some of you lovely ladies who started your treatment around that time had picc lines put in.
Rubythursday and Alvilajo i think had lines .
my question is since having your picc lines removed, have you had any kinda pain in that arm, say from elbow upto armpit underneath ??
mini mad xx 💖💖
