Problems With Your Port?

Problems With Your Port?

So I have had smooth sailing with my chemo port through 15 chemo treatments with 1 to go. But starting yesterday my port began to bother me in terms of it irritating my chest. I have already called my oncologist and will go in this morning but has anyone else had issues? I am hoping it's not an infection because if it is I might have to get it taken out and then get treated with antibiotics and then get it put back in after I finish the medication... Ugh... 🙄

Mine bothered me from day 1 and moved on numerous occasions. They had to manipulate it back into place. I couldn’t wait to have it removed.
