I had my Power Port put in yesterday morning. It is really sore whenever I lift the smallest thing or even move my shoulder to do dishes, etc. It looks red and sore. I don't have a fever or anything. Do they ordinarily hurt quite a bit? For how long? I don't want to be a baby and be calling over there for nothing, and I have chemo Monday so they'll see it then. But I thought you all could reassure me that this 'day after' pain and redness is normal. Thanks!
They went over stuff with me after they put it in but I was pretty loopy at the time. I've never seen anyone's close-up all healed. Do they get less ugly?
