I seem to be having extreme difficulty keeping anI peripheral /midline/powerglide IV in my veins. It would seem that my body is rejecting them. Sometimes within 1-2 days or even a couple hours of insertion. I have developed blood clots in both limbs and am running out of options. This is especially disheartening because I have MRSA in my blood as well as Endocarditis effecting my tricuspid valve. I just recieved a central line last night but I'm concerned this may block up as well. Doctors and nurses don't seem to have any real answers as to why this is happening. Any ideas?
