Ok, so since my husband's visit to the surgeon yesterday and x-rays - the surgeon has decided that he should take the port out. He sees nothing wrong with the port from the xray. He thinks that the catheter in there is rubbing on his collar bone and that is causing the discomfort. He suggested putting it in his arm as he thinks my husband will have the same problem on the other side of his chest as he has now. He will have it removed on Monday - I don't know if they are going to put the new port in or not. My husband now sounds very depressed and seems worried about the chemo without the port. My husband has endured all this pain for no reason. GREAT... Sorry, I'm a little mad right now and I don't know who to blame.
