Annie, Limekat, KC’s Mom and others — Thank you so much for your posts! – they sure do help keep things in perspective…I’m not worried about the insertion procedure; I have had catheters put in for plasma-pherisis and have dealt with the maintenence of those devises — I guess the surgeon’s strong warnings about blood clots and infections (re medi-ports) was what set me off – however! having completed day three of IVIG infusions- yesterday- with three different oncology nurses trying five times before they could get a vein to stay open for my last 45 grams, I am ready for a port – I will let you know how it goes when I get it! – Bonney
