have another question

I haven't seen any posts about this, so here goes:

I'm currently 12 days post op. My IV was on my right arm, about halfway up my forearm. Last night I noticed what looks like a long bruise that starts about an inch and a half up from where my IV was, towards my elbow. It's about an inch long. When I rub it, it feels like a bruise but I can also feel what feels like the vein underneath is hard. Do I need to be concerned about this? I know that blood clots are supposed to feel "hot". This does not. The only time I can feel that there's anything there is if I touch it.

I think it may be normal to feel that in the vein with the IV. Mine took forever with this surgery to go away. It was bruised starting about 4 weeks, believe it or not. Before that it was fine. I had two IV's I came out of surgery and the one on my hand never did act up but is still fairly hard 3 months after....I hope you are ok, if it does act up or bother you, then the next visit just ask the doctor. Our poor bodies were put thru the wringer!!

To be on the safe side give your doctor a call.

I recently had a CT scan done with contrast and I developed phlebitis in my hand and wrist.
