Re: Cannula

Hi debbru


Thanks for posting.


It is not possible to offer advice on your individual situation as there may be other factors that need to be considered. You should discuss your concerns with your treatment team or breast care nurse, as they will be able to give you advice on your concerns. 


It may be more helpful for you to talk through your concerns on our Helpline, as we will have more information about you and your treatment. The number is 0808 800 6000.  


Here at Breast Cancer Care we offer a range of free supportive services that you might be interested in. This includes face to face support at a number of locations throughout the country. For more details about all of these services, please see the information on the link.


Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.  


Best wishes




Breast Cancer Care Nurse

Is it a good idea to have a cannula in the same arm as a clot, the clots in the Basilic vein in my upper arm.
