After advice from this forum and elsewhere I decided on a port after all. My MO and the chemo nurses said I had good veins, but when I told them I decided on a port after all they said they were glad.
I had the port put in Friday, and I am recovering well. First chemo on Wednesday.
One thing I did not realize was that there would be two scars, both where the port is placed and up on my neck where the catheter ends. Knowing this beforehand would not have changed my decision. Nevertheless, I wonder how the scars look after all is over. I have been trying to find pictures online, but have not found much. If anyone has a good link to share with pictures of port scars, both the neck scar and the chest scar, that would be great.
