I was wondering what the consiquences of having the same chemo in a port for 10 years. I have recently gotten a chemo burn from pressing were the port opening. Are there any consiquences of doing this other then the burn.

I pushed on the port were you inject chemo in it. I started to lose hair from doing so. The lump has sort of shrunk too. My bones are thickening too which surprised me. I feel like have more energy too.

I was told that a port should not stay in for more than five years.

I didn’t know that. When I had the port put in I was in a coma. To make things really bad I had no ID and they Thought my age was between 5 and 9 years of age. I sort of went home after escaping quarantine for some kind of virus I apparently had. It would have been tame if I hadn’t been exposed to radiation that’s when they put me on chemo. But just in case I was still in quarantine. Any way I escaped and went home to were I actually was 20 years of age. Now all I need is a full body scan once I get back on insurance to prove I have cancer again and the port line. That’s when I am willing to bet they will find the portliness serial numbers and hopefully a DNA test will prove my real age despite growing all my teeth back right now!. Thanks for the response and I will get the insurance and this will be treated.
