I have pain and swelling at injection site

What did SWIM do wrong and what does SWIM need to do to make it better?

SWIM shot Dilaudid in hand yesterday and now site is swollen and very, very painful. SWIM was in the vein b/c got flash back of blood before pushing. Pain and swelling did not start until couple hours later. SWIM has been elevating and icing area, but with little improvement.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated for SWIM.

That's not something SWIM has experienced before. The pain usually comes within a couple of minutes.
Its been a couple a days anyway. Can SWIY tell us how things are now?

Re: SWIM has pain and swelling at injection site

Thanks for asking
SWIM says site is much better now, but still a little tender with only a small lump/mass at wrist.

Icing it usually works, or you could try an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. If it doesn't start going down in another couple days you might have some problems, but did swiYou miss or what?

Sometimes I feel like it's also possible to move out of the vein and miss a little, or even overload the vein, which can account for a lot of swelling incidents where one still registers. The next time that happens try using a hot compress, put some really hot water on a washcloth and hold it against the skin for 10-15 minutes, it will enlarge the blood vessels near the injection site and help to reduce some of the damage & swelling in the long term.

It's such a deceptively simple solution, but it really works! It has to be done right after the fact though.
