    Infusion Port removed

    Celebration

    My last chemo was July 29th 2011..last petscan was clear too. So now my doctor has let me have the infusion port removed,. there is something about not having it anymore that makes me feel that I am not waiting for the cancer to return...strange I guess. but happy its out

CHEMO ,,,, I was so scared,,but I have the most wonderful doctor James Harris
