I started having problems with my mediport last week with redness which was finally diagnosed as a skin infection in the area. Well, the surgeon that installed it examined it and determined it couldn't be used any longer due to it being so close to the surface of the skin probably from some weight lose post-op. I had a PIC installed yesterday (i hate it already), mediport comes out next Thursday and a new one goes in once the site heals. It was amazing to see the xray with all the staples from the MIE in it.
My plan is to outlive the next one as well. :)
