    @kathy1977 Your born this way, genetics have a great power on how your body work,but you could try to work on a gym, pumping iron could increase the blod flow and dilate your veins.

    I hate having an IV …
    I hate having an IV started on me. I have REALLY bad veins. By that I mean they are VERY thin. The nurses feel my arms and hands and literally feel nothing. Last time I got stuck 9 times before the anesthesiologist finally put it in my neck. And a central line in the OR. I assume there are some RN’s here. How can a patient make their veins fatter? I have tried drinking tons of water in the weeks leading up to a procedure. Doesn’t work. And some nurses seem to LOVE sticking patients repeatedly.

    Do they hurt? Depends on who does it. If the nurse have a lot of experience then it won’t hurt much. If the nurse sucks or if you have bad veins then it can hurt quite badly.

    You didnt occlude the vein once the cathalon was inserted, while you were putting the saline lock on. Blood would be pouring out.
