I am looking for information about flying internationally while i still have my chemo port in my chest. Can anyone give me information or advice on how TSA deals with this?    Thanks.

It‘s no problem at all. Doesn’t set off any alarms or questions.

Did you get a card with your port?   I did.  But that was years ago.   I had my port in for 6 years.  No problems.  Enjoy your trip!

Enjoy your trip.  People fly with all kinds of things implanted in their body.  Nothing scares people more than when you tell them, "I have cancer!"  I remember TSA questioning me about my dialators once. Ha!

I've travele d to Guatemala twice since having my port, and once since I got the screws and plates in my ankle.  None of it set off any alarms at all!  I did take my bio-flo info card with me in case I had any trouble with the port while abroad.
