Reply To: Port placement in upper arm

Thank you for responding
My daughter is only 13 and she has autonomic and central nervous system involvement because she has intracranial hypertension
She got down to below the 1% in weight before the IVIG started enabling her to eat again so I never fail to be annoyed when I read that CIDP doesn’t affect life expectancy …how can it not?
Knowing what you know now would there be a certain order of port placement you would choose? That is would you start lower on the arms and then work your way up, the to the chest ?
