DH has had a tough time this week (well EVERY other week is tough... No I guess just every one is but), when our cancer center tried to access his port this week they had a hard time getting a "flap" to open for the return causing another injection of (positive of) heparin. DH never really pays attention even now.
I asked him if they said anything about it, cautionary or otherwise. He sat there silent rubbing his head and face and gave me a response of "but its not good" as if he said something before that which he didn't there were only crickets for that minute between the question and that answer. To him having ANYTHING extra isn't good in his opinion the man barely took anything medicinal even when he was healthy.
I guess I just want to know if anyone else had port return issues, is it common, if its not common what can we expect etc?
