My infusion team told me that my IVIG (maybe the brand – I’ve done Carimune and Gammagard) is hard on the veins because of the viscosity.

I’ve lost all sensation in my arms so it wasn’t the needles that bothered me. My vein would ‘blow’ as they called it during infusion and would swell up like Popeye’s arms. One of the many reasons I️ opted for a port.
