Last year I finally gave in and decided to get a port at my local hospital. For years, I didn't want one but my veins couldn't take it anymore. I like my port but have a question. Has anyone had any problems with their ports tilting, as the nurse told me, mine was "tilted". I told her that I thought it happened in January when one of the chemo nurses was extremely rough when accessing the port. But the nurse said no that couldn't have happened. My port seemed fine until that day. I don't know if it was the end of her shift or what, but it was a really bad experience. When she put the needle in the port, and started to draw the blood out, she was actually pulling on my port so much that I thought it was going to come out of my skin.
