If you are in a place where not very many nurses can find a vein for your IV, it is a good idea
to have a picc line inserted in your arm so you don’t panic when you see a nurse with a needle in her hand.
Some people have a port in their chest.
After my surgery for ovarian cancer,6 chemos were ordered.I have always been glad my doctor
ordered the picc line. Sure saved me a lot of panic and high blood pressure. The only bad thing
is it has to be cleaned and rebandaged each week. It cannot be gotten wet so it’s fun trying to
take a shower with one hand.
There are a lot of bad things to say about side effects but the fact is yuo are still here to tell
about what happened to you and maybe help someone else who maybe in your shoes.
