    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): i do not like this thing, but didn't want my veins to become bad. i had a blood clot develop at the end of the cath. coming from the port. had to have it rerouted to my neck and then have to be put on coumadin and have my level tested all the time. you have to watch what food you eat...it is a real pain sometimes!!
