Today was the day! The last thing I had to check off my pre chemo list has been done. Port placement.
Doesn’t look too pretty but so far I’m in little pain. The procedure itself was very easy.
I was but in a deep relaxation. Aka I passed out. Well I think I did. The nurse however told my mom that I was extremely talkative. Not embarrassing at all. 🤦🏼♀️
When my oncologist gave me the option of having a port I didn’t think twice. It makes things so much easier during chemo.
They can easily access the port and can do multiple things from it. They can draw blood, give chemo, and if I need a CT they can give me the dye in the port.
Because I had so many lymph nodes removed during my mastectomy, I have only been able to use my right arm for blood draws, anesthesia, etc. This will make all of that so much easier.
It doesn’t look pretty right now. But it doesn’t feel too weird yet either. I’ll keep you guys updated.
I have another meeting with my oncologist tomorrow to go over all things chemo so I will be prepared.
Wednesday is my first infusion.
Thanks for all the messages. I see each and every one of them and they put a smile on my face.
Until next time.
