I just made my appointment to have my port removed on July 17th. My surgeon's office says that she will do the procedure in the office under local anesthesia. The nurse told me that I will hold her hand and yell "ouch, ouch, ouch" throughout the one-hour procedure. She also said that I will feel burning and stinging. Anyone else experience port removal this way? I have to say I'm a little nervous about this. Thanks.
