Now I never even thought of the pic lines. I can understand that having those in for more than a day may cause inflammation and then infection.
I never had one in for more than a day so far. It would probably be the most common amongst all of man made things put in and left in for a period of time.
At least it eventually comes out and hopefully with no infection. The permanent ports would be a concern if I know I’d get infection easy from the pic lines.
