I received my port about 10 days ago. I was so proud of myself, I didn't need anything more then a local. I was in and out within 2 hours. Then next day, both incisions (the one where the port was inserted and the one connecting to my vein) started running, itching, and painful. Forutantly, I had an appt with onc dr. the next day, when he saw the incision, he said it was starting to keloid. He gave me an antibotic. Well it got worse instead of better. On Friday, I went to see surgeon who performed surgery and he immediately asked, are you allergic to glue. I replied yes, he then informed me that he closed the incisions with stitches as well as glue. They then started to clean the incisons with ascetone to get rid of glue. After about 10 minutes, they felt they had gotten rid of it all. It has now been 4 days since they tried to clean out incisions, and the incisions are still running, itching, and painful. This note is to let others know about this procedure in case you have an allergy to glue/adhesives. They asked if I had any allergies in pre paper work, but I didn't mention being allergic to glue/adhesives, I had no idea they used glue to close up incision. Please be aware of this.
