    I had my 1 year check up and I'm still NED, so my question is at what point should I consider removing my chemo port?

      I was scheduled to have my port out after two years NED (I had a year of maintenance chemo). We had an issue when my boyfriend needed to go out of town for work and I didn't have a ride home. Fast forward to this summer and I had a recurrence. Now I'm pretty glad I still have my port.

      I'd say it's really up to you and your doctor. My hope is that no one ever needs their port again after their initial treatment.

      Congrats! I never had a port, yet anyhow, but sounds like people are saying do when its feels right to you! Sounds like a good idea to me!

    Is it possible to be in denial about remission?

      Once again I will start this off by saying thank you for all the great advice. I recognize I am my biggest hurdle right now but I am working my a$$ off trying to get back into the best shape I can in the event it comes back. I really didn't have a say in it last time but if it returns I will be ready for it.
