Lauren had her port put in the same day she started chemo. It was very sore for quite some time. In fact, even over a year later it gets sore sometimes here and there, but goes away. She just takes her regular pain meds and might add in a few Tylenol. Like Eli said, if it continues to be really painful, I would get him checked by the doctor. You would want to rule out infection. Take care.
My beautiful daughter, Lauren Patrice, will live on in my heart forever.
