Hi everyone. Well I am 3 days out of first TAXOL and so far so good. BUT...yesterday they put the CVC catheter in and I had intense pain and it continues. They had a ittle trouble getting it in and it took quite a bit of Litacain to get me through. I am on DARVON now and take 2 every 3 hours to stabilize the pain. ANyone else have trouble with the CVC? After watching thehospital video I thought it would be a breeze and it wasn't. No one else seemed to be as uncomfortable as I was in recovery. I go back today for them to check it and show me how to flush it. My husband is going but he is not happy about it. He really doesn't want to deal with any of this. Oh and they said I cannot lift my babies while I have this in. That is 6 months of missing out on things. Well sorry to ramble.
