In brief: Risks
A "long line" can lead to blood clots and infections.
Your physician needs to be made aware of any residual symptoms , so they can address, promptly.

In brief: Unusual
Possible to have thrombosis around picc lines and arm discomfort or swelling.
If a lot of clot - swelling could involve innominate veins. I am groping for a reasonable cause but unlikely. Ultrasound can determine.
