Vein is hard after IV?
I had my daughter a week ago, And while in the hospital had an IV in my wrist. No, from the insertion point and about an inch and a half up the vein is rock hard and sore to the touch. I'm scared terribly of blood clots. Is something I should call my doctor about tonight or can it wait till morning?

Did they happen to leave the IV catheter (the little plastic tip ont the IV) in, or maybe it happened to disconnect from the tubing and it's been unnoticed? That would be something you'd feel there and would have that sort of texture.

It's a bit strange that it would be THAT hard to the touch and there would still be blood flow. If your fingers/hand/arm are dark blue/red/purple you may want to call tonight. Otherwise I think you should be able to wait till morning. It's really a case of the symptoms presenting with it. But it's for sure not normal.

I doubt very much if any of the catheter was left in the vein. Most likely there is some inflammation around the vein which is very common after indwelling catheters are left in place for a while. Sometimes the solution leaks out of the vein and lies in the soft tissues around the catheter site. Use hot compresses on the site every few hours for 15-20 minutes at a time until it feels better. You should be fine in a few days. However, if you see any increase in swelling, pain or redness then return to the doctor as it could become infected. Take some advil for the pain if needed.
