As expected I bruised where they got the iv placed for my cortisol stimulation test (which took six pokes including the one that placed it, which also needed an ultrasound machine to visualize to place it properly), and I bruised at some of the attempted iv sites too.
Here are two pictures (one – outside – from this morning, and one – inside – from this afternoon – with a better camera) showing how I have bruised from that IV. It’s a pretty good sized bruise, and is all around one of my skin biopsy scars.
Oh yeah…. I’ve got scars from skin biopsies checking moles for cancer.
