      I've had 2 ports and both of them bothered me to no end. I couldn't wear a seat belt because anything that touched that area sent me through the roof. I couldn't wait to get them out and like Greg, I kept mine and it hangs on my monitor at work to remind me that whatever nonsense is happening there, it doesn't compare to where I've been. I also experienced a lot of pain when it was being accessed so I did the spray as well. It helped but I still cringed when the needle went in.

      After my port placement, I experienced some pain, but Tylenol helped me as threw up on the percocet I was given after surgery.

      I agree Bengal. Port was “alien” to me. Had it removed ASAP.
