Pain at arterial site

  1. I'm in dialysis now, and I let a new nurse cannulate me. I noticed alot of pain with the stick into the arterial. And it's still kind of twinging pain after start of treatment.

    A little about me: I used to do hemodialysis at home so I'm used to 15 gauge needle sticks. This was an odd stick.

    I don't see any infiltration, but still hurts. Help?
