Re: PICC Line covers

I have some really lovely covers from Etsy. Although they come from Canada, it is worth the short wait (about 10 days). Way cheaper then any I have found in the UK. And I always get great comments (usually from people wearing tubigrip or the ones from livebetter with cancer!!) x

Re: PICC Line covers

Hi 

 

Like yourselves, I had real trouble finding a picc line sleeve that was attractive, washable and MADE IN THE UK. So I have decided to make them myself. Please see my website picc-me.co.uk 

 

There are a range of colours (plain, bold, bright) and funky pattern ones as well.

It's up to you whether you want to blend it in with your clothes or to make a statement, but it's designed as a fashion accessory to allow you to be you. It's what i needed when i was having treatment.

Re: PICC Line covers

Hi everyone, I was also searching for PICC line covers. It seems lots of people are still having issues trying to find them! I found a company called Live Better With that is selling them in the UK. We bought one and it arrived very quickly within 2 days and was beautifully wrapped up. I can't figure out how to link to it on this but if you can't find it I will try my best. Just let me know.

Re: PICC Line covers

I have a lovely collection of odd socks with the toes cut out. Knew I would find a use for them some day! The heel bit fits nicely over the elbow and looks and feels cosier than a tubigrip

I cut up long lengths of patterned or coloited tights / kids leggings. Mixed and matched with the pattern or colour of my outfit much less obvious than a tube grip.

Re: PICC Line covers

Hi, I've just had my PICC line fitted and I'm looking for covers to use as I don't think the hospital one is going to last long.  Its fraying already!  Also with summer coming, I want to be able to have something a bit nicer to cover it.  I've had a quick look online but having difficulty finding anywhere that supplies them.  Any ideas?


Thanks

Emma

Hi Jo, Mine arrived this morning. Thank you so much, They look fab and so much better than the poxy things the hoepital give you! Off to The Middle East in a few weeks, where we also live, and may need to buy a few more lovely bright colours from you so I can match my tops!!!

Re: PICC Line covers

I made picc line covers out of sections of coloured tights and sections from sleeves from unwanted jumpers. No need to buy anything, so simple to make your own. I had some that fastened using velcro and others with lace that matched outfits. Even my Oncologist commented on them.

PICC Line covers

Hi
Just to let anyone interested know I am making PICC line covers as there is nothing available in the UK and tubigrip is so unsightly especially in summer with short sleeves. I have had 2 PICC lines fitted and still currently have one in for treatment.
If anyone is interested please PM me and I can give more information.
Jo
