You can ask the nurse if she/he has experience with 'rolling veins'. If they can't get it the first time, don't let them dig for it. Stop them, and demand someone experienced, you have that right!!!!
I learned the hard way, being nice I let a nurse dig around and finally after 3 tries get and IV in my arm, less than a min later, my vein collasped.. turned out it had 3 holes in it. Not pretty and scarey!
I wish you the a smooth peaceful experience with this surgery.
