I don't do a lot of posting but I read everything on this web-site.
I have a question about picc-lines. A few weeks ago I developed a blood clot in my arm. It was determined that my port caused it. I was hospitalized for 4 days, now I'm on Coumadin. My Oncologist decided that the port needed to be removed because the swelling in my arm didn't go down and I developed some sort of veinous pattern in the area of the clot. The port was removed last week and next week they will insert a picc-line. Does anybody have any experience with this picc-line. I'm not sure what to expect and any advice will be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
