Reply To: Bruising at Infusion sites

December 8, 2017 at 8:32 am

Thanks for posting cer100, less pain and discoloration today….and I do remember the nurse “rolling” the vein on the first day. I used to give blood and would sometimes get a bruise but it was always so much more pronounced and smaller area than what i saw with the infusion. I’m just a little nervous with being new to this and all the stories from people who had a reaction to infusion. It is hard for me to hydrate so much since i am a person who didn’t drink much water/liquid daily. I’ve gone from drinking only coffee in the morning and maybe one soda or bottle of water sometime during the remainder of the day to drinking morning coffee and 3 or 4 bottles of water and several diet sodas throughout the day. I should have been doing this before since i had a kidney stone a few years ago but i am a person who rarely gets thirsty.
