Arteries after chemo

I am 31 year old diagnosed with breast cancer,and underwent surgery, chemo and radiation. My lymph on the right was also removed, meaning I could only received chemo through my left artereis. My arteries are completely damaged, and even drawing blood is a painful traumatising experience which leaves me blue and bruised for weeks. Is there anything I can do to strengthen the arteries and reverse the damage caused by chemo? PS: Even if the docs do find an artery, as soon as fluid is injected the vein bursts - very painful!
