How did your x-ray go? I hope all is well with your port. God Bless, Adele

Hello Adele!

The x-ray looked good... the surgeon feels it's likely I may have broken open the encapsulated tissue which surrounds the port and catheter tubes... all I know is that it hurts sometimes and I am still a wee bit nervous... silly thing! I will have the onc. draw blood from it and then infuse saline solution to check it out. Surgeon feels confident that they'll be able to see a prob at that point. *crosses fingers* Let's hope it's nothing!!!
Thanks for thinking of me!
Have a great day!
