Got my care plan today. Start chemo in august after my holiday. Got to have a PICC Line fitted. What’s the best way to look after a PICC line? Was thinking of getting a tattoo sleeve to cover it. What do think

  • Hi Glad things ae sorted, and you get to have your holiday, Good way to build your self up.

    I never had a pic line, though others, have and i am sure they will pop in.

    Enjoy You Hols. xxx 

  • Hi Mark and welcome! Chemo doesn't work with my type of cancer, so never had a pic line. Please make sure you speak to your Team before thinking of tattoos etc, just to make sure you are allowed a tattoo. I know now when I have a scan, they ask do you have any tattoos so some affect the scans and some don't.

    As Ellie says, there are lots of people on here who have had or currently do have them so I hope they will answer in due course.

    Where are you off to on holiday? It is great you can fit it in before treatment starts as it will I'm sure give you a boost!

    Love Annette x
