Porta Cath surgery this morning.....UGH!

Well, I'm having the dreaded porta cath put in at 9:30 this morning. I know it's a necessity and I will be just fine. I have to keep reminding myself every time I don't want to do something, that by doing "something" I am getting myself closer and closer to a full recovery and then I can get back to my precancerous life.


I would like my readers to make a stop over to Stephanie at "In Perpetual Motion" She is just embarking on what I have already gone through and can really use a "J-LAND HUG"


So go on everyone show Stephanie some love....... click on her name below.....and thank you!   J-LAND IS THE BEST THING AOL HAS TO OFFER!

I'm still here and I care.  Please be ok.  I'm praying for you.  I dread it too.  Yes, you are inspirational to all of us.  Truly loved out here.  I'll visit Stephanie too.

  I always said people should be born with a porta a cath.  They are so great since you don't have to get stuck for blood all the time and hunting for a good IV spot.   It would be the first thing I would demand.  Good luck and hope you come to accept it.   Most of my patients praise the day they invented them.

Hope it all went well. I'm not a needle person. I dread my 6 monthly blood tests, it usually takes 20 minutes before they can find a vein and I just hate it when they think they've got it and the vein jumps sideways. ugh!

Kim,  It was this time last year that my MIL acquired her port.  It's a pain but necessary.  She never complained about it.  Best wishes with your procedure.  I'll go over and visit Stephanie.
Regards,  David

Hi I just had to comment. I found your  blog today doing a breast cancer blog search. Iv'e  enjoyed reading your posts. You have a great outlook. I was diagnosed in August with IDC. I also have a port and will start my chemo Monday. It takes a little getting used to, but from what I hear we will appreciate it in the long run. I really hope your feeling better.
I just started my blog this past week. Come by and check it out if you'd like! http://journals.aol.com/gosso23/my-breast-cancer-story/    
Take care and feel better!
Trish
