popped vein

I was admitted into A+E last week and stayed in hospital over night, but dr's always find it really hard to get blood out of me.

The dr in casualty tried a few times and managed to pop a vein in my hand (by my baby finger). We knew it had popped because it hissed and made a backfiring sort of noise.

The area came up like it had a mini golf ball under it. I showed the dr who took the blood and he immediately pressed on it to flatten the lump (pooled blood)

A week later it is painful to touch the area by my baby finger and the ring finger.
Do you think it needs to be looked at or maybe wait a little longer as it is only a week since?

I make it a habit of seeing my regular physician the day after any trip I make to the emergency room / emergency clinic because of other possible unseen complications occurring when I am not required to stay overnight for observation.
I suggest you go today if you haven't already gone after Pag36's advice. Good Luck - prayers it is all ok

Thank you pag36 and KSJEn6891

I went to my GP yesterday

She has given me some ibuprofen gel to rub in my hand and advised to use cold compress (which I was doing)

Then if it hasn't gone in 2 weeks I have to go back and see her

I am glad you went to the DR and hope you will not need to go again.
