I am back from having my Hickman line inserted. I was one of five for this afternoon. I was sedated, so I knew little about it. he was able to insert in the same right external jugular that had been infected a year ago, so healing had taken place there. Also the thrombosed vein on the back of my left hand which resulted from a venflon while I was under the surgeons, had fully recovered and the was patent.
How wonderful the body is at healing itself!
