My veins are small

And so I finally got my CT Scan done. They did two. One normal and in the second they injected some coloured liquid into me so that can see better. The doctor in attendance poked me 3 times to find the right place to inject the fluid. 3 times! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! So painful! Cost around RM650. Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! This time sakit hati pulak. Sakit tangan, sakit kepala and sakit hati.

“You punya salur semua kecik kecik” she said. Not her fault for poking me 3 times. Happens all the time, each time I go for a blood test or whatever that requires the needle. Always kena poke many many times before they get it right. I must have really small veins. Can’t say the same of myself though.

One month is up and I haven’t lost anything yet in my lose 5 pounds in 5 months project. Haiyah! Such poor self control I have.

    *Shake hand* We are gang! I also the same like u, must kena poked few times, got once even kena poked at left and right hand also can not, then the nurse ask me do some exercise then poke again..sob sob so ‘cham’..
    I think is lack of exercise maybe.

    Left hand change to right hand, then say change needle sometimes even change personnel before getting it right. Ouch!

    ct scan need to be poked? that’s new. hmm, also have small vein..last time 5 times poked..i know the feeling very well.

    Well, it depends, the kena poked one just gives a clearer picture in layman’s language.

    I think they are making excuses for doing such a terrible job at inserting the needle. My mom always get that excuse. I got that too. I remember being poked 3-4 times just to have my blood drawn for HepB test (that was in Assunta Hospital).

    You know, you might be right. Once, after trying a few times, they called in another fella and said “No worries, he sure get it right one” and he did.

    I sama like you also. When I go for blood test, I would silently wish the nurse good luck in finding a vein to poke.

    Hahaha. Yes, I also do the silent wish thing.
