Friday, I went to the hospital to get my port FINALLY put in...and I didn't die on the table and they didn't have to abort mission for the second time woohoo! The bad news is, as you can see by the picture, I have incisions on both sides. No, I didn't get two ports. My Dr. initially tried putting my port in on the left side and it was a no go. He then went to my right side and it went ok apparently. So the bad news is I'm now sore on both sides and not just one, but the good news is I wanted my port on my right side anyway so it works out. My procedure went good aside from that and then I FINALLY got my picc line taken out which I couldn't be more happy about! I've been pretty sore since Friday but hoping it will wear off the next few days...below is how I spent my weekend (all iced up)! And of course I totally deserved a PTerry's chocolate milkshake after surgery....especially considering my surgery was at 4pm so I couldn't eat since dinner the night prior or drink since 10am. The picture of the wipe is from my body! One of the crappy parts after surgery is having to get off the orange Oompa Loompa colored cleaner off your body they use (and lets not even talk about the sticky crap from the other machines, that stuff takes days to get off)! I also put a picture of what my port looks like in case you've never seen one (mine is called a power port and is triangular)...
