I'm headed to the emergency for a possible blocking at my wrist; same arm they took blood from yesterday. I suddenly had this awful hot burning & stinging pain at my wrist/palm of hand jct. The blue vein swelled up, the palm pad swelled, and pain in pinky & ring finger. I grabbed ice pack and used 20 minutes. While area is now purple!!! Spoke to RN who said go to ER because they may need to do a CT, which urgent care can't do. Crap! πŸ˜₯

The swollen blue vein burst and I have blood under my skin. They called it a hematoma & superficial phlebitis. I'm on Keflex antibiotics for a week. And that along with the vein issue could very well delay my surgery on the 8th. My whole hand is burning, stinging/tingly, and itching with redness on the front & back. Looks, or rather feels like another restless night. Geez I need a vacation! 😎

This is my wrist now. I have absolutely no idea why it happened. I was testing, watching TV when it happened. Thanks Amanda, Jahmac, Gardner & Daniel! Hopefully it won't worsen. Sweet dreams to all!

Good news, it's improved a lot & barely noticeable; no swelling, pain, or odd sensations,

It's completely better today. Doc said yesterday he is surprised it cleared so quickly, given I've still got a bruise on my right elbow from banging into the doorjamb 3 weeks ago. Lol!

I'm happy to see and hear that it's much better and hadn't interfered with the surgical schedule. Best to be on track and get it over with. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š
