Meet my Port!

Posted April 10th, 2013 @ 8:21am

I may be done with my chemo...but I still get to go to the Hickman Cancer Center every 3 to 6 a nurse can flush my port.  And my port is the easy entry way into my bloodstream without me having to be poked and prodded while searching for a vein.  For 2 more years I have to keep this little reminder of where my chemo was injected.  But honestly, I don't really think about it much.  It doesn't bother me or get in the way of anything.  In fact, it made me laugh when I looked at it recently...the scar where it was surgically inserted used to run directly across the middle of the port.  But now, 6 months later...the port is well below the scar...meaning, like everything else on my body...even my port has sagged a bit.  Really?  Can't anything stay where it is supposed to?  Or must everything droop after a certain age?  I already know the answer to that question!
