PICC Line Problems Are Over

Yesterday I had my PICC redressed for the first time in 7 days and it was adhesive style of bandage. That is three weeks in a row with adhesive style bandages and my skin looked normal underneath each time. No allergic reaction to anything. We think that the major switch from chlorhexidine, a skin antiseptic to benadine is what did it.

Looks like my PICC line problems are over.

It will be a short post as I'm spending today cramming for my exam tonight.

Hope everyone is having a good day!

Hi Daria, I have visited before but am not up to speed. How is college going while dealing with cancer and treatments? I was enrolled in classes in the Fall and then suffered a recurrence and was told it would be best if I put the venture on hold for now. BOOO! I'm still anxious to go back though. I think it's great, fantastic, you are doing it!

yay for the PICC line resolution...i am so glad for you. i accidently pulled mine out just before my final two treatments. i was folding laundry and as i grabbed a queen size bedsheet in both hands and lifted them up in the air to 'fluff' it - i felt something 'snap'...the last two infusions were done via peripheral IV's...ugh
