I just had my six-month check-up (actually 7 mos) today. All looked good. They did a PAP and I will get a PET Scan and I can get my port removed. I have had it in almost 6 years. I had an appointment for next week to get it out, but I got new insurance so now there is a problem which I am sure we will work out.
My question is do they put you under to take it out? The one place said that a Physician's Assistant was going to do it. I am not sure about this, but then again, I am not really sure who put it in. Do they put you under? All I know that it is a pretty easy procedure.
