So on an infusion day they'll access the port with a needle which has tubing attached to it. They cover that area with a sterile covering and tape it down. When they're done administering the chemo via the tubing/port/etc at the end of the day they remove all of that.
A power port is great because that's one less time you have to deal with people struggling to get an IV started. Just "pop" and it's done.
Well that is good to hear. I am quickly getting over my aversion to needles. Luckily everyone has been really good and while not a good feeling it hasn't been painful. I am nervous about the port being placed but a good friend from here reassured me today that it wasn't bad. I will get Twilight sedation.
