What do you think of your port? Has it made life easier or more difficult? Where is the port and how big is it? - Fashion still counts - are low necked or close fitting tops out?

RD598.G294.1 - Portacath Helpful Advice
Velvet Girling
Get a port. In the main you can forget them. They don't hurt. The newer ones are flatter and not noticeable, they mean less time at the clinic and ease of treatment.

RD598.M250.1 - About Ports: A Little Q & A
with the Masked Patient
