Can I just say I hate IVs!

Can I just say I really hate IVs. I got five the day I dislocated my hip. They said that they couldn't use the one the fire department did, and after 4 other IVs they used it!
In the picture was the second IV they attempted. The girl new nothing and was dinging around my arm. Thankfully I didn't feel a ton of pain when she was doing the IV because I was in some much pain from the dislocation.

Omgosh I'm so sorry 😑 I hate ivs. As well. When I had my surgery the nurse tried a few times in my hand after me telling her not to . Then she finally tried my arm and after a few tries she got it . So I completely understand.

That is messed up that they ""couldn't use the same one that the fire department started "" then used it anyways 🤔🤔

Anyways I hope you are okay. Sending prayers your way ((Gentle hugs))

Once when I was in the hospital they couldn't get my IV in either. A couple of nurses tried and they finally had to call the flight nurse in. 😡
