During my stay in the hospital (on the 2nd day I believe), we had to move my IV from my right hand to my left because I developed some irritation. It hurt a lot and I had a red line/rash where the IV was. Once it was in my left hand, it was okay.
Flash forward to now. Four weeks later... and I have a tiny bump where the IV went into my right hand. It hurts, like throbbing. If I push on it it really hurts. I googled it and then stopped because I started scaring myself. I read that it may be a blood clot?! Should I call my surgeon's office tomorrow and ask them about this? I'm kind of scared, and it hurts!!
