After the first blew, they tried 11 more sites to get a vein and each time they touched them, they blew. 4 nurses, the nurse anesthesiologist and finally the anesthetist later and I had one tenuous IV in the inside of my wrist. It was either that or a PICC line, which at that point I was begging for if they would just stop stabbing me. Had to keep that wrist hyperflexed for 3 days while they finished the abx. So I went in last week for my blood draw and the second she tried to touch my veins in either arm, they rolled really badly. Off to the lab I went (though it was much better there). I really hope I dont get dehydrated, itll be 100X's worse.

Anyone else have experience? Will my veins ever recover or are they going to be permanently ruined?
I'm sorry mama. I'm not sure about the veins thing though.
