  • Not after I gave birth but when I last had a surgery and had the IV in for a few days my wrist was sooo swollen, bending my hand backwards caused a lot of pain, and the vein was like popping out. For me it went away after a couple of weeks. (but mind you I had the IV in for like 5 days straight so the pain should go away sooner for you)

  • when they took the IV out after I was complaining the whole time it hurt, the needle was bent! I still have a nice knot where it was over a year later. that was my first and Last IV.
