Topic: Question about PORTS
so after 6 rounds of Cis/Gem ...my husbands veins have taken a beating.
they have suggested a port be put in (and one is actually scheduled)
since he is considered terminal/stage 4-- there is really no end to
chemo so it makes sense to do this.
In some ways I'm ok with a port...in other ways it freaks me out.
I have (of course) also heard some horror stories about infections and
blood clots, etc.
Anyone care to show their opinions on a port?
both pros and cons?
(is this the right section for this question?)
