I was on prednisone for so many years I forget how many. Over the last 5-7 years and the last
( 3 + ) on remicade and the 40-50 ER visits and my many admissions my veins look good, real good but all the years on prednisone have turned them into rubber. They roll and blow. If ANY nurse can get the IV ( ER or Infusion ) gets the IV in on the 1st attempt I ask for their full name and write the Dir. of Nurses telling the Dir. what a wonderful nurse they were, and how they knew their job. It takes and average of 5-10 sticks to get a vien. Have had as many as 15 ( arm black and blue for weeks ). A nurse will only try twice and call someone else in.....Then you have the cocky nurse when you tell them about your viens , then after two tries they say, I guess your right ! Any one else have problems with their viens and IVs ?
