I had a love/hate relationship with my port. I'm glad I had it because my arm veins were then NOT used for chemo treatments. This means, I still have good veins. Also, the stabber never has to hunt for your vein. The needle is simply popped into the port, and voila! You're ready to go.
The downside was that it was on my left side, which was the side I used for my messenger bag... and it was perfectly positioned to get irritated by the seat belt on the driver's side of our car... and I always felt this pulling sensation... And I couldn't happily sleep on my tummy...
At the end of the day, I'd do the port again. Hopefully, however, I will NEVER have to even consider it!
