Re: Injury from blood draw
Hey girl, we meet again! I am sorry that I don't have an answer for you, but I do have plenty of experience being jabbed alot.
For the last 3 weeks, my doctor has ordered 5 sets of labs, several of them needing 5 or 6 vials of blood. I go to the same lab every time, but the last two times, (one being just this morning) I have come out with 3 or 4 sticks each time. This morning they were down to baby butterfly needles to get in, and struggled to draw the vials.
I bruise so easily with stage 4 kidney failure, it looks terrible.
For you however, I suggest you call the lab and/or your doctor to report your condition...AGAIN, just to be sure. Due to the fact that you have just had surgery, your case is different than mine completely. Better safe than sorry, and you are worth it! Let your doc know, this doesn't sound right.
Wishing you the best...
