Stage 3A Patient
My port hurt but it was worth it! Ask for lydocaine cream for sure, also wasn't told this until after the first three chemo treatments but if you suck on a hard candy while they inject the saline (which makes a lot of people gag) you won't notice a thing. Make sure you aren't having a reaction to the tape they make you keep on it. Ask for sensitive skin tape. After 10 days I had scars from the other tape!
