    Implant chemotherapy port

    Procedure or Surgery

    My experience in getting the Portacath inserted, surgery went well. I am still recovering, insertion area very sore, it’s been since Friday and it’s 4 days now. I can’t sleep on the side the Portacath is on (right) and all I can take is Advil to reduce swelling. Any suggestions???

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    First day of Chemo I was very nervous, but the nursing staff made feel calm. She explains everything I need to know and assured me I was in good hands. Leslie Simon Breast Cancer Center they are best.

    Hair loss (alopecia)

    Side Effects

    I went through the 2nd Round of Chemo this week. Wow, all of my hair fell out, and my cranium is so sore. This is the sickest thus far, I have felt. All symptoms decided to appear. Vomiting, Diarrhea, headache, and nausea. All I can do is get plenty of rest and take all meds prescribed. Question on loosing my hair? How can you ease the cranial pain? Dori

    Heart problems/heart damage

    Side Effects

    I just completed Chemo Cycle 3. The next day I was experiencing heart palpitations. Every time I lay down I felt my heart racing. In 2014 I had a PFO Closure and they also found an Aortic Aneurysm 4.5 cm. It’s weird because I did not experience this the first two cycles. Help?
