A pt. recently had their PICC removed and reported that she felt like her hand was "on fire" when the PICC was being removed. She reported that she had numbness to 3 of her fingers on that hand after the line was removed. Over the past 2 weeks, the numbness has resolved to 2 of her fingers, but the one remains. The PICC line was in the brachial vein and I know that the nerve had to be involved with the symptons that she is stating. She did not report any of this numbness during her hospital stay,just after the PICC was removed. Has anyone had experience with this kind of situation?
