Q. What is the reason for a small, painless lump in the IV injection area?



Hi doctor,

I had a fistulectomy surgery. I was given IV for two days. It was attached to my right wrist and it was removed after two days. On that spot, where the injection was inserted, a very small, painless lump sort of a thing formed. It is already 39 days after surgery, but that small, painless lump is still there. What is the reason for this? What should I do to get rid of it?





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

Please relax and do not worry.

  • It is thrombophlebitis of superficial veins where your IV was attached.
  • I suggest you apply Thrombophob ointment (Heparin sodium) three times a day on the swelling for seven days. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
