Customer Question
My husband went to...

My husband went to a vitamin clinic where you can get IV B and general vitamins for energy and immune and glutathione addition the nurse had 3 tries to put in IV it was dripping very slow and it was hurting him he finally dealt with it but 1/2 hour after leaving his shirt and jacket were soaked it seemed to be the fluid but there was blood leaking from injection site his forearm seemed hard and his hand seemed to have a darker tone . We went back they were gone. I’m worried could this be serious?

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

This just happened he has soreness at the sites where she tried to draw: his health is good he just got over a URI so that’s why he thought the vitamins would help.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No ...i had the same procedure and no problems he kept saying the fluid was going the wrong way. I don’t know why she couldn’t put the IV in he never had a issue before

He is 66 he said his hand is a little numb but no pain I’m trying to send a photo but it’s on his iPhone I’m trying.
The top of his for arm feels hard like the vitamin fluids did go down

He is 66 his hand seems a little numb but not sore.
His fore arm seems hard as if the fluid leaked down and out
Doctor: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 1 month ago

ok, if he can move his hand without pain, there is no danger.
It is probable that part of the vitamins have not been administered inside the vein, so the fluid remains in the compartment of the forearm.
This can cause pain, increased volume or hardening in the area.
They should not be alarmed but the medication can delay its absorption since it is out of the vein.
They should watch the area and if it shows red, very painful when moving the hand, changing the color of the blue hand, violet or pallor.
At the moment I suggest indicating antibiotics to prevent infection of the wound.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
