I had my pre-op today during which the usual blood pressure, blood tests etc were done. I've had trouble giving up my blood in the past and now I know why - it would seem that I have small veins which run deep! I've heard it all now.
I drink loads of water and made sure I had a couple of pints this morning (I've heard this helps 'puff' them up) but nope, they hid away and didn't want to play.
Anyone else had this problem? The last time I went into hospital they had loads of problems getting my blood, eventually the doctor sighed and said 'you will be going home covered in bruises at this rate', I looked him in the eye and said 'so will you'!
