    How to stop excruciating blinding non stop pain from port insertion I had today

    My port hurts so bad I have to sit up sleeping, can't walk or move breath eat or have fun. I feel like my chest, left shoulder, lower and upper back have been crushed by a truck. I can't take deep breaths or eat or talk without screaming in pain. Even with pain meds don't help. Its unbearable and I feel like I can't breath and then when I do its slow n shallow because of pain. I'm cryi g and I can't move and I ahe a family n baby boy who needs me n I'm helpless. Chest pain is very aweful and arm pain neck and whole left side. Someone help because I'm in so much pain.

      I hope you contacted your doctor ASAP. I had a bit of pain, but nothing like you describe. Yikes!

      Hopefully you have either gone to the ER or contacted the physician. I have a port and did not have pain like your describing. It does not sound normal. Be safe.

      PLEASE go to your doctor or to the emergency room asap. You should not be having these issues with your port. My port moved, and did not even cause any pain. I did notice that I was getting short of breath. My Oncologist is supposed to have an echo heart done on me every couple of months. I have not had one since October. Anyway I am stage 3 her2 positive so I am on herceptin for a year. I had a heart scan in July and it said the port catheter had moved down in my heart and it was rubbing on the wall of my right atrium of my heart. I do not know why I was not informed immediately of this. I was informed on October 24th that I have a large blood clot that is embedded into the wall of my right atrium. I have been on Coumedan since October and the size of the clot has not changed at all. I am now seeing a heart specialist because of the blood clot. I do not want to scare you, but I do not want to see anyone go through what I have had to endure. Please let me know how you are doing after you have your port checked.
