I apologise if this has been discussed previously, I couldn't find anything in the search box. Due to having extremely rubbish veins and needing iv immunoglobulin every 3 weeks, I was told yesterday to consider having a portacath. I know all about them as I am a paediatric nurse on a CF ward, am just after personal opinions of anyone who has one. I don't feel it appropriate to sit down with the kids I work with and ask them what it feels like etc.
Does anyone have any experiences?
