Sick for the last couple days very sick fever chills body aches excruciating pain weakness general soreness rthroughout the whole arm what can I do for it
The piccline should not cause pain and they are designed to be in place for up to three months if proper hygeine is maintained at the insertion point in your arm and the injection port on the line. See your primary care doctor or ring the clinic at the hospital that performed the procedure and talk to one of the clinical/treatment nurses (they often know more than the doctor).
Maybe a visit to the ER is in order if you have signs of an infection near the insertion point or along the vein (this is extremely important) as blood poisoning can kill in less than a day.
