The tech could not find my vein and finally when she did, she started injecting the contrast and then said she'd blown my vein
. When I asked her what it meant, she said, oh your arm
will get bruised. She then called in
another technician who found another vein, injected the contrast and the test was done. When I got home, I noticed that my arm was bruised and swollen on the side that the vein was blown. It's been three weeks and my arm still hurts to the touch and it's still swollen.
