Living with a Hickman Line - any tips please?
C got his Hickman Line put in yesterday and they changed the dressings at the chemo unit this morning.
Bit traumatic yesterday as he tells me they struggled to get the line in - it was refusing to go all the way but apparantly a big shove did the trick in the end. It was a bit bloody as C is on aspirin so bleeds easily - hence the need for today's dressing change. The first of the stitches is due to come out at the planned chemo session next Wednesday all being well.
Just wondered if anyone has any tips on living with a Hickman Line. How do you cope with showers/bathing?
