Right sistergirl, that is what we discovered. However I have very thin veins & butterfly works much better. At the time I had that episode my dr had sent me to a different location. That day they only had one phlbotomist there. Did inform my dr that I will never return to that location again. She is in full agreement with me. Anyway all is well. Hopefully I won't have to have any work done for at least another year. whew!

Wolf_Angel I do wish you the best of luck. btw the bruising is also caused by the type of pressure the person is exerting when applying the needle. I've had some that 1/2 my arm would be bruised, and with others there be absolutely no bruising. My thing is beware of the ones who say I"m the best at this.. they are usually the ones that leave the bruising.
