Topic: Port Removal
My oncologist gave me the ok to have my port removed.
They gave me the option of having it done in the office or the OR. I guess in the office they numb the site and remove it. You are awake. In the OR, you get twilight.
I am going to the OR because they only do it one day/wk in the office and the wait is over a month. I can go to the OR in a week.
Plus, I think it would be weird to have it removed while you are awake. I've read other cancer patients either say it's no big deal or they hated it.
