I have a pic line in my left arm, because specialist who for ports under skin was away. I have had 3 treatments every 2 weeks and 9 to go. Everyone has suggested ports are better. I saw the specialist who will do operation today, he said port would normal go. On the side my plc line is in so will have to go on other side and if can't find good vain in chest into my neck. He said cancer team wouldn't want pic line removed until sure port is working. Anyone had experience of a port in the neck? My chemo. Is not due for another week after op. Anysuggestions
Thanks for getting back to me. I think I will tell the specialist if he can't find a good vain in chest, I will stick with the pic line and leave the neck. The pic line. Is. painless I can't feel it (the line in my arm) or when they take blood or administer the drugs.
