Hi! I've been watching this message board since my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer in May and have found it very helpful. He had surgery, is stage 3 (cancer in one lymph) and is now going through chemo - oxy and 5FU. Everything has been going very well, almost no side effects, until today. His port apparently leaked during the night while he was wearing the pump for 5FU. Has anyone had this problem and how big a problem is it really? They gave him an antibiotic and he's supposed to go back tomorrow - to see how things look, I guess. Any words of wisdom or other suggestions? Thanks in advance!
