    I found a similar problem with the port. It is still uncomfortable, especially for about a week after each chemotherapy session. However, I suspect it would be much worse if they were having to find veins to use instead of the port. You may also need to be careful if you like to sleep on your side. Just say to yourself, "This will pass and one day I'll be able to get rid of the port." It will be quite a cerebration day!

    So sorry to hear the procedure was painful for you. I think when it comes to treatment, surgeries and procedures, the experiences always vary from person to person. We all hope and pray that what we go through is easy and painless but sometimes it doesn't happen that way. I hope you're feeling better and not in too much pain.

    The surgery for me was not painful and I've had my port for about 3 months. However, every now and then I get piercing pain in the port area. It just comes and goes. I've had to take Tylenol a couple of times. I've told my nurse about it and they say it's common since it's a foreign object in my body. Sending hugs your way.
