I read entries on here about those of you who have not had your port taken out.
I HATED my port at first, it felt like an alien object inside of me.
Now, I really don't mind it, and would not be opposed to leaving it in, just in case. My problem is, I have to be on Coumadin as long as I have my port. I know it is just a blood thinner but I wonder what the long term effects are of being on Coumadin? I will ask my onc, but I never see any mention of you all being on coumadin, are you? Plus, it will have to be flushed once a month, I thought someone said I could do this at home. I cannot see me pushing that needle into my port. Any feedback? Debbie
P,S, I guess this is heavy on my mind because I am headed off for my last chemo this morning. YIPPEE
