My PICC line
Afterwards, I came back upstairs only to be told the line needed to be adjusted. Not a huge deal –The nurses explained this happened sometimes. So again, I went in to the room with the nurses and again, downstairs to x-ray, and again back upstairs to wait for the main nurse.
adjustment… she seemed a bit shocked and confused at this stage and wasn't sure why this kept happening.
Traumatised as I was (by the pulling feeling of the vein, the blood, the pain… as I said, first attempt wasn't very painful, but I was quite tender after the adjustments!) it was a bit amusing... Even the receptionist down in x-ray was laughing that I was there all day. From 9am to 5pm.
Oh and another thing the nurse told me that caused an issue –They were measuring me as an adult (which of course you would do, I am an adult) but she said the end result was more of child’s measurement –smallest one she has ever done, hahahaa… weird. I don’t even fully understand the measurements, but still, weird. I have one wonky-ass child’s body.
