Hi pat here again. We just ended week one with my husband's chemo. Problems all week . Although the portacath was put in a few weeks ago the first treatment was Monday with a 2 hour drip of oxaliplatin Immediately after the 24/7 pump with 5fu was started and 22 hours later it was leaking badly. The pump was stopped and restarted on Wednesday and then again about 21 hours later it was leaking from the port. The pump was stopped again and on Friday we went back to hospital and an interventional X-ray was done and the dye went through ok. Pump was reconnected and so far today it has not leaked. Has anyone had problems with the pump?
