I'm free for a week - PICC line ?
So after a really bad 10 days post capox cycle four . I discovered that the district nurses had not been as careful whilst redressing my PICC line , they were a bit rough with the sticky dressings at times . To the extent that it had come out during the last two flushes and redressing by 6cm . I phoned my chemo unit and as I was due to attend the next day for a CT scan they said to pop in and see them . So CT scan showed it was no longer in the right place , which explains why the district nurse couldn't draw blood .So it's been taken out and a new one put in this week on my chemo day .It is as I good to be free of it , even if only for a week . Just having a proper bath and shower makes such a difference , and my skin surrounding where it was is as I dry and I can concentrate on exfoliating it and moisturising . It is surprising how easily I can be pleased ??
