Port-o-cath

if you have a port inserted after several treatments, is the risk of getting a clot less likely than if you have it inserted after only a couple of treatments.

Re: Port-o-cath

I had a port put in before I started my treatment. Do most people get ports put in later? (Sorry, recently diagnosed, don’t know a lot)
