Here's something that I've not seen posted to these boards.
I have an infusion port that developed a clot in my jugular vein. I've been prescribed an inject-able anti coagulant, two self administered shots a day for two weeks and then 6 months on anti coagulant pills. I was not told that clots could be a complication and doing some research, it is pretty rare, anyone heard of something like this?
They're setting up removal of the port next week and I'm wondering how they take the port out. Installing it was day surgery, I was out cold but it was quick. Anyone had one out? How do they take it out?
