What great news!  I was afraid to read your post, I thought maybe your pet died or something.  We don't have to mourn Bumpy!  Becky

Great news, Coach. I don't know how long you have had Bumpy, but it must be such a relief to have your chest back. Hmmm, I think I'll name mine. . .

Hi Mike,

  You lucky duck! I have to keep mine in for 2 more years. My Onc said they are good for 5 years and as long as mine has a good blood return upon flushing, he prefers to keep it in. I'm totally use to it and it doesn't give me any problems, but that little "bumpy" spot is still a constant reminder that the cancer may come back. Anyways...I'm so happy for you that your bumpy is gone!!! "Yeah"...Sue

So happy you had you Borg impant removed. Still have my dual port - never named it but have jokinly referred to them as my two extra nipples on the right side of my chest :).  Maybe I can name them "Betty and Barney" - from the famous UFO abduction case (Betty and Barney Hill - not the "Rubbles" of Flintstone fame ;).

Hugs - Jim
