Good luck with everything Runnerbean. I was dreading thr picc line as they can never find a vein usually but this is different. First you have an ultrasound to see if it can be done, after that you are given a local aneasthetic and I just felt a bit of discomfort, a pushing sensation, you then have an heart scan to check it is away from your heart, all done whilst lying on the bed, I didnt look and it was done very quickly. It is not a problem once in it doesn't restrict your arm movements. I just have to have blood thinners as I have a clotting condition. Mine is going to be flushed every week at the hospital. Easy to get the chemo through it.
