I had my first port put in and had issues with bleeding from the incision site. Had to have that port removed and replaced with a new one in which the surgeon had no idea where the bleeding was coming from. The new port immediately felt better than the firstt one. But now 17 days post surgery and one round of chemo over my port incision site is still "weeping" this tissue fluid. I've seen the surgeon, and the oncologist who tell me its not infected and that its normal for this to happen even up to 2 weeks post op. It has become more annoying than any of the treaments & I'm thinking a pic line wouldn't have been this much trouble. Anyone else have port issues??? I'm on radiation # 12 of 25 and I have one more round of chemo on the 16th. I still feel like I'm stuck in a nightmare and can't wake up.
