Topic: My Port Worked!
Went to Dr. Lee's (Princeton) today and was expecting to get some meds to unclog the "gunk" that gets into ports. 2 weeks ago they couldn't get blood return. They even reaccessed my port and no go. I wonder if it's the nurse now??? She tried 2x and they ordered the meds. I went in today expecting to get them, and guess what?? Blood return!!! I am so happy that I don't have to worry anymore.
But they refilled my pump and the same nurse tried to access it. She failed 2x. So the other nurse had to do it.
I wonder if it's the nurse?? Maybe she just doesn't have a good "touch" where I'm concerned.
I'm just relieved it's over and I can quit worrying about that now... now it's on to worrying about radiation and the size of my nodes, etc......
