Reply To: To Port…Or Not to Port?

Hi, I’m glad you are receiving treatment. Your life will gradually get back to normal. I have a vortex port with two chambers for plasma exchange. It was very painful for the first couple of days after surgery but now I am completely at ease with it and forget it’s there. I don’t worry that with some outfits it is visible because i’ve adopted it as part of me now and it makes treatment much easier. I am fairly slim particularly the top half of me and so it’s quite prominent. I can go jogging with it and it doesn’t restrict my life in any way.
