My spouse has his on the left side for Avastin treatment. His port is directed to the jugular vein and the port is on his chest. He's had it since last summer and doing well. You get used to it from what I've seen. There was recently a story on a lady making port pillows to put on your seat belt strap to lesson the irritation.
I couldn't f' imagine NYC! Boston's bad but my husband can still walk decently. I'm scrambling for public assistance (which I always thought I would never need) I have physiology appointments for my 13 & 7 yr olds next week but they're really in the dark about the current prognosis.
I think it's time for you to add some spikes to the wheels!
I'm scared too. I have no idea how to console him, I guess myself either.
