Damaged vein in hand?

Postby Catt Queen » Sun Jun 17, 2012 10:57 am

Yesterday I somehow damaged a vein in my hand... Was lifting a sack of cat litter into the boot of my car, had keys in my hand and somehow they flipped round and banged against my hand. Hardly noticed it so thought nothing of it until a big blue lump appeared (still no pain). Today it's sore and itchy, still looks blue and slightly raised but not the big lump like yesterday. I guess I better not do anything too intense today... ? :(

Yeah it's on the mend, just looks like a nasty bruise now. I spoke to a friend who is a nurse, she reassured me and told me to rest for a few days Image
