    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): Had a port placed, 4 days later ended up in the hospital . Had an infection, on iv antibiotics, postponed chemo for a week. Came home with a PICC line, visiting nurses coming in each day to clean, dress, and pack the wound site from port removed. Home on antibiotics for 10 days. I was told this happens to 1% of the patients, however, viewing the postings here, found there seem to be many with infections. I am now concerned to have another port put in. So far the consenses is to do it, but I really am unsettled about this.
