    port same day

    I had my port inserted and had my first chemo the same day. I had to drive an hour to my appointments, so it saved a trip. I am so thankful to have the port, getting it in the arm/IV would be painful inho. I felt nothing through the port, and they can use it for CT scans, PET Scans, blood tests, etc. I will miss it in 2 years when it is taken out.
