Hello all! I had my port installed Thursday morning and I got my wish they did general on me. I had a great plan of staying awake for 2 days so I would be sleepy, but I arrived at the hospital and they gave me a starter sedative and it did NOTHING!! So when I got to the OR the anesthesiologist gave me another sedative thru my iv and it did not make me groggy or sleepy so she decided to put the gas mask on me so I would go to sleep! Let me say that I loved her for this! Woke up a few hours later and bam pain!! This pain is much worse than the lumpectomy I had, but now it is Saturday and the soreness and pain is easing away a little more today. My first chemo treatment will be this Wednesday. I do not wish for it to start so soon, but I think it would help with the unknowns also when I get the pet scan it would help me so I quit worrying about the what if's. My question is on the pet scan, I have read that it is injected. Is it done by IV or just an injection? Also if it is an injection couldn't they do it thru my port? Makes sense to me to go thru my port.
