I have had a PICC and it went bad so the doctor (resident)said she wanted to either put in a port or a hohn and I asked her to PLEASE put in a port and she said no I think a double lumen hohn is the best for you so on Oct 26,2011 that is what I had done. Well, well, last week it quit working. I was just being used for transfusions and flushings just right now but anyway, I went in to the chemo center to have it worked on and one of the lumen burst. so they had to pull it and they ran and called the attending and he said to call and set up to have the port. So at 2pm today I have a port put in. I start chemo and radiation at the beginning of the month.
How do they put the port in? I know someone just asked how they take it out, now I am asking how they put them in
I have Stage IIIc Grage II adenocarcinoma, endometrioid type with squamous differentiation that is what the pathology report said can someone please translate into english to me I mean everyone speaks into initials and I do not know what I have. sorry for the ignorance
