I had a port put in to make my chemo easier. But I keep getting blood clots. They say it is from the port. Now I have to go get a needle in the belly every day for 10 days to deslove the blood clots. Anyone have the same problems? Jud

    I work where the ports are put in and when this happens patients are ususally put on coumadin 1mg every day. this is ia pill which is a blood thinner. Ask you doc about this instead of the shots.
