Re: need info on port infection
Both my husband and I had IV for all our chemo treatments. I have good veins...his were not so good but they managed to do it that way each time. I never liked the idea of a "foreign body" in me, so I resisted having a port, and having heard some stories of infection and blood clots, I am glad I did. Others however, never have any problems with their port. I hope your husband's port problem gets sorted out soon...I am sure he has enought to contend with without having the added stress of an unnecessary infection.
Keep us posted.
Husband dx July 2003, advanced rectal cancer stage 111C; myself dx July 2006 indolent lymphoma; husband dx February 2010, stage 2 prostate cancer.
