I am getting my chemo port removed (a.k.a. "deportation") on Monday after 2 years of living most intimately with it. Has anyone had this done? What can I expect?
I looked on the breast cancer forum for this info because I knew there are threads there on what you want to know. I didn't get a port.
Hope this helps.
Good luck with the removal. I had one removed 18 years ago. From what I remember, it seemed to be easier and faster than the insertion operation. I don't remember much from it, so I seem to think that's a good sign that it's a quick, uneventful op and recovery. I do remember, I was so much more comfortable not having to worry my infant daughter would push on it while I was holding her or that I would bump it somehow.
This a landmark in your journey to celebrate. Best wishes!!
