PowerPort (port) through which chemo and other medicines and fluids can be administered. Also great for lab draws and scans for which I.V. contrast is necessary. I was reluctant to have the port placement ‘surgery’ back on May 7, 2010. But I am so glad I wasn’t given a choice & was ‘forced’ to do it — it has been a lifesaver!

  1. I’m a little late in catching up with your latest posts as have been working thru the Christmas holidays, but I hope you’ve had a good Christmas and wish you all the very best for 2013 and all the years that follow.


  2. Chemo damages veins so badly, but I see so many people opt out of ports. I MADE my surgeon put mine in with my mastectomy. He was shocked, but then said: Wow, what a great idea, get them both done at the same time! Ok, as a pediatric nurse, I plan for every possible procedure my dialysis kids need under the sun so they only have to go under anesthesia once….even immunizations for the shot phobic. So the adult world continues to amaze me at the stupidity of the comments I have received with my own medical problems. I see 7 Drs and when I ask for the labs to be batched to save money and my veins, they sound petulant and inconvenienced. Really? And we wonder about expense…..
