    chemo port

    This is an odd question, but does anyone else with a port have itching? Been about 10 days since it went in, and it itches like crazy! Is it my imagination, or do others have this also?

      My surgeon told me the itching was from nerves that were growing back and when they reached where they are trying to get to the itching will stop.

      After 6 months, I don't get itching so much as a bit of buzzing. I adjust how I'm sitting and it stops. I do think it has to do with nerve endings and muscles rubbing against the port ...

      I have had my port since April 2018. Still gets itchy. I list 50 lbs after having port put in so now it can be uncomfortable at times. But if I adjust myself it usually feels better. Good luck
