Topic: Port pain?
Hi all - I did a search through the forum and couldn't find any answers to my question, so here goes:
I had a port installed in my right chest abut 5-6 weeks ago. Since then I've undergone 3 chemo treatments. I have not had a problem with any of that. But just this week, my week off from chemo, the area above the port where the catheter is, has been sore. It feels tender like as if I had a bruise there.
Has anyone experienced anything similar? I wouldn't be too worried about it, but it doesn't seem to be going away.
