My veins are giving out!
Have bloodwork, infusion, scans and doctor appointments - one of these almost every week - and amost all require NEEDLES! My poor veins have so much scar tissue that it's taking several attempts to find a cooperative vein; worst one, five sticks before they found a vein prior to my MUGA scan. Worst issue is that they can only use my left arm; since they removed lymph nodes under my right arm, they can't inject or extract anything. ...and I'm so dehydrated I have to drink a bottle of Gatorade before they attempt to poke me. Bloodwork tomorrow, yippee!
