Good News! My Port is in.

After many years of putting off I officially have my port! It was not that bad – but took about a week for me to recover from the soreness. I don’t heal easy. Had My first Ivig with it – still slightly tender – but no worse than a regular IV. Thanks to all for advice – just hoping my body doesn’t spit it out! I have one of those really tempermental ones! (bodies that is).

My home health care approved to have my husband do my ivig and my neurologist nurse veto’d. She is old school and we go through this often. She was against the port as well. Never a dull moment with chronic illness – you have to advocate for yourself everyday!

Thanks to all for the port advice!!!!!!
