New Technique, Better Infusion
I know I've mentioned before how much I dislike my infusion therapy. One of the reasons it's a bother is that the nurses often have a hard time finding a vein. I tried two new techniques that seemed to help the process. One thing was that I dressed very warmly. Another thing was that I performed windmill movements with my arms a few minutes before. Doing this helped improve the circulation in my arms and made my veins more visible. The nurses were successful with the first injection. It usually takes two to three tries. I was very happy. I was a little achy from the repetitive motion, but Id' rather deal with the achiness.
