The drs office called after I posted this and told me to take Benedryl. It helped, but I was too sleepy. It usually doesn't hurt now if I do the push slowly. When it does hurt I take half the dose which helps the pain, but doesn't knock me out.
I will see the dr in a few days and discuss it further with him. The plan was to evaluate in November to see if I am ready to have the picc line out. I do not want to have another one, so I am really hoping I will get this out soon.
Thanks for the replies.
