So happy that you are in a position to get your port removed. Let us know how it goes. I'm sure the process will go smoothly for you. Although I am NED too, I still have my CV(central venous) port which was put in below my right collarbone. I'm probably going to have mine removed soon too.

Kelly I have one of those too. My doc said I could have that removed too but I told her I would hang onto till spring... Praying I will not need it for chemo but it is handy for blood draws and scans.... There is no use anymore for the IP port so she is taking it out....

Hi Glad to be done

I think this is wonderful news. Every little step that you take to get back to your new normal is just wonderful.

So happy that you get to do this. Let us know how it went and how you are doing after you are home and rested.

I'll be thinking only good positive thoughts for you tomorrow.

Huge hugs
Lisha

about the CV port being handy for blood draws and scans. Come this October, I will be two years NED (knock on wood). I think part of the reason why I haven't had it removed is because I had this fear that the minute I had it removed, my cancer would come back. The port was kind of like my good luck charm. I'm starting to feel differently and have less fear.

Take care,
Kelly
