Reply To: Bruising at Infusion sites

Bruising is not uncommon for me but I find it varies from infusion to infusion depending. Depends on where the site is too. My hands seem to tend to bruise more but number of sticks, did the vein blow or roll, how well hydrated was I etc leaves the amount of bruising unpredictable. It might be barely noticeable if at all or it can be a big yellow+purple monster.

Only time I have had post infusion site pain was when they hit a nerve once when inserting the catheter on first try.
