they were where they need to be or if i need to be put on medications or not. but two days later and they are is a blueish-brown bruise should i be worried? cause when the lady went to draw the blood she had to bend my arm a little bit to get the blood to come out in to the syringe faster. it kind of hurt and now there is a little cut about half a centimeter long.
It is just bruising from the needle stick. The needle tip was probably against a valve in the vein and when she repositioned your arm to increase the flow, it may have pushed through the valve. It is no big deal, it will go away. If it is painful, you can wrap a heating pad around it for a bit, a few times a day (or use a towel wet in warm water and wrung out then apply to the area) to help reabsorption. It will eventually go away on its own though.
