    Implant chemotherapy port

    Procedure or Surgery

    Port placement went well however I ended up with a DVT in neck. Cannot use for blood draws. When I go for port flushing, tends to be a bit sensitive/painful. Don't know if removal would be decided.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    Just underwent cytoreduction and HIPEC on 8/03/16. Painful & extensive are words I would like to use to describe it however, if this course of treatment is what's needed I would do it again in a heartbeat.
