My daughter just underwent a mastectomy before Christmas and is to start her chemo Friday. Yesterday the dr did a "Port" and by last night she was upset and crying when she called. She said her arm was very bruised and the incission was bleeding. She was calling her dr when we hung up. Have some of you also experienced this discomfort with a port. I think she was really having a rough day and Today was no picnic either as she was having some sort of scan on her heart. I know she is scared, I am scared for her. What advice do you have for a mom who lives 400 miles away? I am making arrangements to be with her for her 2nd and 3rd treatments. She will be receiving Adriamycin and Cytoxan.
