Reply To: Vortex Ports

After nearly three months, the decision was finally made by my neuro that I would have to have two ports implanted if the plasma exchanges would be continued as veins finally gave out.  Tomorrow morning I am scheduled to have bi-lateral Vortex ports implanted.

Have many concerns, but since PE has been the only treatment to keep my CIDP progression slowed, have no other alternatives.  Will let you all know how the implants go. Have to wait 2-3 weeks to use them, but will update my post so others who may be considering a port will have the benefit of my experiences.
