I underwent an endoscopy last week. An IV line was placed on the front of my hand. It is still swollen, and I have mild pain. But there is no redness. I have been using warm compression. When will the swelling subside?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern.
You have mild pain with swelling of the vein, due to IV (intravenous) cannulation. This can be phlebitis, which means inflammation of a vein near the surface of the skin due to IV cannulation. It usually gets better on its own after two weeks. So I suggest you follow a few instructions mentioned below.
I hope this has helped you out.
