Tips to Consider on Infusion Days…

I think drinking a few cups of water helps get those veins ready for the IV, at least for those who don’t have ports.

What are your tips for infusion days?

    I would always try to get outside and enjoy some fresh air on infusion days because I knew I’d be out of commission for about a week following the appointment and cooped up inside. I would also always treat myself to a chocolate chip pancake before I left the house. Not the healthiest advice, but it was something small that I looked forward to each time! 🙂

    That is great Crystal! I don’t believe that chocolate chip pancake mattered, as infusion usually has most people wrecked with limited appetites after… gotta live, so go for it.

    That’s a great tip! I think that wearing comfortable clothes would be my #1 tip!

    That’s definitely up there as a must. 🙂

    Hi Dan, Yep those hot packs worked some of the time. I even see thay have a vein machine to easily find the veins to use, but I don’t think it was as helpful; you have to ask for it.I always had to warn from going to my hand, where the veins popped out like an amazon. 🙂
