I am so upset about this I didn't even want to post about it. But I just had one of my worse fears realized. I was getting IV treatment and the vein got sclerosis. I have been searching google, and there is zero information regarding the implications for patients. All I find is information about how to prevent it, and articles about surgery for spider veins, etc. What I want to know is, how does this effect my life, my arm, future IV, future blood draw, etc. Has anyone gone through this? Do you know about it?
