    Port Implant

    Procedure or Surgery

    I find the port uncomfortable, but after having two R-CHOP treatments without it, find that it was absolutely the right decision. I got an infection at the first chemo site, and the needles got really old after awhile. The port's not fun, but it beats the alternative.

    Went as Expected: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
