I recentley was admitted for appendicitis and was in the hospital for 3 days. Well apparantly the the first day I had antibiotics and fluids interveniously but the needle was inserted incorrectly and all the fluids were stuck in my my vein and not circulating through my body. On my 2nd night there one of the nurses noticed and pulled out the needle and as she pushed down on my vein to stop the bleeding. The pain was really bad. The nurse said that it would go away. Well now the veins in my left arm are really hard and very painful. Is this dangerous? It's been 2 weeks since my surgery. Does anyone have any suggestions?? Is this malpractice? Please help with any advice.
