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

      I've had a chest port for 2 years and it's had to be "checked" twice through the camera used for placement because Dr wanted to see what was causing pain and discomfort so much of the time.
      It was concluded the port is functional but Dr said it could be hitting against a nerve, hence pain.
      I was given the choice to have it removed and another put in its place but there's no guarantee it will be any different, or worse. So, I endure it.
      It hurts less if I maintain a bra in place, but who wants to sleep with a bra on?
