    Here is a pretty good snapshot of a very complicated health care bill. This graphic shows the changes from the current AHCA, to the HOuse bill, and now to the Senate bill.

      I do, though when possible I prefer they use my port. Unfortunately many of nurses that prep me for my scans do not know how to access or close my port so they set up a pic line, one the plus side I have all 3 scans (bone, MRI of abdomen & Pelvis, Chest CT), all done on the same day one right after another.

      I always have them use my right arm, as I had a lymph node removed from my left (actually, two nodes, both benign but one was hard so my surgeon removed it).

      My veins are toast after chemo. I try to talk them into using my port, but they often wont. In that case, i have veins on my hands that are still accessible. Yes, it hurts to get IVs there, but like you said, Greg, it beats them sticking and probing time after time.
