My husband has his first chemo treatment this Thursday. He has to make a decision whether he wants a port put in or not. Do most people do this? The oncologist recommended he get one put in so he wouldnt have to be stuck with needles so much.
What can you tell me about this port? Is it painful to get put in? Can you shower easily, go about your daily life with it inserted? Is it noticeable under your clothes? Can it fall out easily?
Thanks friends for any information and bless you all.
