Anesthesia

Post IV pain

03/18/2008

Question:

I recently recieved an IV at the ER when I dislocated my knee cap. It has been a week since my visit to the ER and I still have pain in my wrist area just below where the IV was inserted. There is no redness or bruising but it is very sore to the touch. I asked my doctor and he said it`s fine as long as there is no redness or swelling but I`d still like a better answer. I appreciate any insight!
