THE PORT. Thoughts?

November 6, 2017 - 07:07

Dear all,

I am a recently diagnosed new mum in my thirties currently undergoing chemo for stage 3. Chemo not going too well and my arm feels like its going to cease working. Can anyone recommend or make any comment about the port? My only concern with it is infection and discomfort with it at night / in bed. Sleep seems precious enough these days. Id really appreciate any feedback as it seems to be the obvious option with this arm pain / vein irritation. Thank you. :)
