Hi Everyone,

I was wondering to those that have had PICC lines. Where did you have it placed? This is my second one. The first one I had placed in the upper arm and didn't have issues there. I had it there many months. Now the new one a different hospital placed it AC and its HORRIBLE. I was just wondering if anyone else had it placed AC. I told the hospital when I went there and showed them what I had in the past but they wouldn't listen. Anyway I would love to hear from others! I am afraid I am going to have to go in next week and get yet another one...but at a different hospital.

Thanks for your help!!
