Monday I am to get my port removed in my surgeon's office. I am excited, but I am not quite sure what to expect, as to the procedure. Probably some shots and I will be totally aware of what is going on. (I will just have to shut my eyes, probably.) I am not quite sure about the soreness factor or other post-removal things. I have read of some who start taking the advil or tylenol ahead of the procedure to get a jump on the discomfort. I am thinking I might want to sleep a night or so in the recliner, until the soreness subsides because I do not sleep well on my back. I need to be able to turn a bit, and in the past the recliner has been a really big help.
Anything anyone has to share?
