Unhappy CT Scan - Is this normal???

My hubby had a lower GI CT scan today. They gave him the dye intravenously. 12 hours later it looks like this. (Sorry!! I can't figure out how to upload a photo on these boards).

Should we be worried??? It doesn't hurt at all. He didn't even realize anything was abnormal until he took the band-aid off.

Re: CT Scan - Is this normal???

just wondering how that area looks today? was there ANY sort of swelling that could just have also come along later on? or was what is in that pic, "all' that occured there or in the hand or arm below that area where it appears to almost be what looks like a type of 'infiltration' with the IV needle?

was the insertion of the IV pretty straight forward with it being "done' like all in one shot, or was there more than one attmpt to try and hit that vein? that last question is pretty important and could explain alot. FB
