    Sounds wonderful he got his
    Sounds wonderful he got his port out. I'm wondering since I get treatment in Ontario too, who suggested he have his port taken out? Did Jorge request this, or did the oncologist say it was to be taken out?

    That's good. I'm
    That's good. I'm surprised. I know before I got my port my oncologist made some comment about the fact it could stay in for four years!!! Yikes.

    Excellent!
    I know how you feel about not wanting to take it out too soon... I worry that something could come up and not having the port could just prolong getting treatment. I think my husband would jump to get his taken out because he has had so much done in just over a year, he is just tired of it all and wants to feel normal again. That CEA is wonderful and I am so glad Jorge is happy. :)

    Great news getting the port out!
    Mine has been out for almost 4 years, but I still get pain from adhesions where the port was. So mine is definitely gone but not forgotten. (I had multiple complications with the placement of my port, resulting in excessive scarring, and thus ongoing pain.)

    But yes, it is wonderful not having that lump under my skin and that little tube over my collarbone.

    Wishing Jorge many years of good health!

    It's nice to hear Jorge is
    It's nice to hear Jorge is confident to have his port out and feels a sense of freedom. Mine, I plan to keep for awhile but that's just me. I had so many problems with it in the beginning and now I hear that it's one of the best functioning ports the nurses have ever seen. After a rocky start, I made friends with the port just as I have Norma, my temporary stoma. (She doesn't know she's going back inside soon.) Yeah, I know I sound crazy, but preschool teachers have a tendencey to personify objects:)

    So happy things are going well.
    Love and light to you.

    Port
    Great news on port removal and CEA level! Not sure when they will take mine out but I'm looking forward to it! Can't sleep on my right side because it seems everything on the left side feels like it sliding over. :). Can't sleep on my left because of the port and I'm not a back sleeper! :)
