Hi all. Hope everyone is having a good day. That's what we must wish for a day at a time. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has had what is called a power port. I just had one put in on Friday. It is a port that can be used not only for chemo but also for injectable dye during CT scans. It is bigger than some of the smaller ones and I'm worried that I made a mistake in selecting that larger one. My surgeon said that if I was his mother, he would recommend it because then I don't have to get stuck for CT scans so I agreed to it. It just seems rather big but then there is still swelling from inserting it. So maybe it will be fine once it heals up. Anyway, I just thought this is a good place to ask your opinions and see if anyone else has had this particular port. Also, how soon after getting one put in can I get the chemo? I know, ask my Dr. I wish you all happy days ahead and God bless you all. You are all in my prayers.
