The doctor finally decided to put a port in for my father. He is on docetaxel and will be.doing an additional 10 rounds. Hes already had 10. Prior to this he has had 2 bad arm infections due to chemo burns. The most recent one was his entire forearm. It was really bad. Red swollen and just painful. The nurse informed us this is very common with the docetaxel chemo. Any similar reactions? I kind of thought this was due to their mistakes while admin the chemo? Hes having surgery in a couple days for the port. Is the port risky to have? I've heard mixed reactions. Thanks in advance.
