Topic: Port Not Working Well
My mom had a port put in in November 2009 before she started her first round of chemo. She has never "loved" it. She says it still hurts to have the port accessed. There is no sign of infection but it does not seem to function as we expected. The nurse often has problems getting blood through the port. Has anyone had similar problems? Any suggestions for who the best person to go to would be to be sure it is functioning properly?
