Unhappy Scar tissue on right arm vein


I am 19 now, and I had my wisdom teeth about over 2 years ago, and when they gave me the IV in my arm apparently I had some reaction to it or something. While I was recovering I had pain in my right arm where my vein ran from my shoulder to my wrist, and it was bruised and yellow. The bruising went away, but after that the vein became hard and it doesn't get puffy when I work out like my left arm's vein does. Sometimes it hurts when it's cold or when I work out my right arm. It gives a little singling sensation also. The doctor that did my surgery said it may take awhile for it to clear up, but over 2 years? It's really starting to annoy me because I don't know what it is exactly and how to heal it. Can anyone help me please? Thank you!

Re: Scar tissue on right arm vein

Hi... I was a passenger in a car accident and ended up with a really nasty hematoma on the inside of my right calf. That was in April of 2001. To this day I have scar tissue and permanent damage to those veins. The scar tissue is obvious to the touch, and the whole area is still sore when it has pressure applied to it. It is even faintly visible, like a very very light bruise under the skin. The doctors told me if it didn't heal in a couple of years, it probably wasn't going to. I scar pretty easily anyway and always have, so I kind of expected it to happen. Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about scar tissue. You can't really surgically remove it, because surgery creates more scar tissue. That's what I was told anyway!

Thanks, I guess it may or may not be the same thing, but it does suck... I hope it heals!
