I have the same thing. I asked the DR about it at my 2 wk checkup and he said not to worry about it unless it was red, swollen and hot to the touch. Said it may take up to 3 months to go away.

IV site hurts!

Hi Kajsa sorry you're having trouble with your IV site.... sounds painful! It could very well be fine, but I would give your DR a call anyway and let him/her make that determination, just in case. Plus you will feel better if the DR tells you it's nothing to worry about.
Best wishes for a smooth recovery!
