Portacath Thru The Groin
Has anyone had a port inserted thru the groin. I had one in the standard chest position in 2012 which during Radiation in 2013 was found to have given me clots in the lungs and inner chamber of the heart, which eventually led to a PE and having burr holes drilled in my head, followed by a slight stroke. Unfortunately now in 2017 my diagnosis has come back metastatic in the sternam, chest wall, in the neck and spine. Professor insists in intravenous chemo not tablets and it seems the only way in for a port is via the groin. Having read and watched how this is done absolutely scares me. Has anyone been thru this experience.
