I have lots I'd like to say, since I've learned a bunch of new things in the last couple of days, but I have a sore right chest from the port that was put in today. I think I'm going to be glad in the long run that it is in there. But, right now I'm feeling sore enough that I'm glad to do nothing, so I am taking the opportunity of heavy duty pain killer to type a little here before I fall asleep.
The port was put in as out-patient surgery. Surgery is still surgery, with the IV, the sedation, monitors, recovery, etc. I was admitted at 6 am and home at 10 am.
The type of port I had put in is completely under the skin, and a special needle set-up is put through the skin, into the port and medicine put in that way.
Anyway, I'm not quite up to a bright, shining post this evening, but I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow.
