My mother is currently undergoing 8th cycle of Herceptin after MRM, Chemo and radiotherapy.
Initially a chemo port was inserted for chemotherapy, but as our Doc said it was blocked in its very first chemo session. Since then Chemo(6cycle) & herceptin is administered intravenously.
Each and every time it takes multiple pricks, at 8th cycles of herceptin No notable veins found even after multiple pricks(7) so we returned without taking herceptin by taking week gap (Right side MRM carried out & our doc suggested not try to prick right hand side).
Now they are suggesting for Central line.
My mother is very sensitive to pricks(basically to hospitals after going all through this), is there any better alternative than central line or any ways to improve detection of veins as still 9 cycles remains.
