Hi blu – thanks for the good information! I get my IVIG infusions at a regional cancer center, so I have the same thoughts about oncology nurses that you do – I think you are also right about the preferred site for insertion, chest versus arm – I’m just concerned about all of the warnings that the surgeon had to go over with me – and yet when I see a cancer patient finally get a port and see how happy they are to have one less thing to worry about – well, I can understand the hem/onc. doctor reccommending one when your veins are worn out. Thanks for your answer – Bonney
