The Happy Transplantee showing off 2 hours worth of pee!Arterial line insertion sites

A line insertions in wrist

Just a quick post of some pics from tonight. The one of my arm is showing the various spots they tried to insert an arterial line for surgery.  They ended up putting it in my armpit, and glued it down to the hair; it hurt more when they took that out than my incision site. The wrist pic is also of where they tried to put in the a-line, and the other is of the Happy Transplantee showing off 2 hours worth of pee!

    Actually, they look worse than they feel.

    Glad to see that you’ve had a successful transplant. The Yahoo kidneytransplant group is an excellent group; I’ve learned a lot from it (I’ve been lurking there for over a year).
