My IV insertion was incredibly fast and painless, literally 10 seconds, she was that good.

however, I'm going back next week for my 3rd endoscopy in 2 months

Well, of course it's all down hill... That's rule 3 of the 4 rules of plumbing...

1. Hot's left.
2. Cold's right.
3. $hit don't run up hill.
4. The boss is an a$$hat.

All came out fine...

We had a deep dish meat lover's pizza with onions afterwards... Her choice!

BTW, you are lucky - 10 years. My next is 2 years if I'm still hanging around. And three since last May!
No one has ever had trouble getting blood or an IV in my before. I'm pretty sure pooping like crazy and desperately trying to stay hydrated had a lot to do with it. The first nurse tried two times, which is the usual limit of tries per person. The second nurse came in and get it right away. Oh, well. Since I draw blood and miss on occasion I know how bad it makes one feel to miss and hurt their patient.

I eat a lot of salt, have low blood pressure, but I can make a fist and bulge up a vein like a garden hose.

I have no fear of being poked, love to watch and only fear the big black splotch from those who are (obviously) still in training.

Besides, when it comes to this procedure, I know that the IV is the best part. One of the best things I can't remember!

That's why we roll two paramedics on our rescue trucks. Everybody has a bad day. In one day I had two 20ish males I couldn't thread an 18 in and an 86 year old female I popped with a 14 in each arm. Stuff happens.

OK, I know hitting a blood vessel can be a challenge, but mine appear to be visible even under the worst conditions. What I don't understand is how somebody can look at my arm and not see a good target. I have even had them try two or three times and leave a huge bruise. WTF?

Just took the pic. If I put on the armband and pump it up the blood vessels literally stand up above the surface of my skin.

As the patients get older, the veins get a little tougher to pierce, and the connective tissue permits them to move more ("rollers").
Of course, not always the case, but generally speaking.

Don't get me wrong, I know I am in the minority (nearing 50 years old), but I have had the issue with a few stickers missing my target and making a mess of me in the process.

Been there, I am not sure what the damage really was, but it left a bruised spot bigger than a large grapefruit.
