Strange reaction to port removal

The great news is that my port was removed last Tuesday. The procedure was easy, but I felt like I had a hangover, a little shaky on Wed, then worse on Thursday. Today I'm still shaky and my feet are more numb than usual. Maybe it's in my head, but has anyone experience a chemo like reaction after getting their port removed? It's been over a year since my last treatment.

    Hi Steve
    Have you mentioned any of this to your doctor? Would be best if you did.

    There might be some other reason for the symptoms and it is just mimicking the chemo symptoms.

    Hope all is resolved soon and you can really enjoy being 'portless'!
