Went to see Dr. Dobson yesterday to have my porta cath checked. Everything looks good. It has healed nicely and he says it's ready to use. He told me they should use lidocane or something like it to numb the skin before they access the port. Someone had told me to ask about a cold spray to numb it but he didn't think that was a good idea. He brought some in and sprayed my hand and that had to sting worse than any needle prick would have! I'm glad he sprayed it on my hand and not my chest. That would not have been fun!
