Hello- I am 50yo woman and have been battling stage 4 nsc lung cancer for a little over a year now. I've have chemo (Carboplatin and Alimta) , then maintenance with only Alimta. The full chemo had good progress but once I went on maintenance it started to grow and the pain in my bones is coming back. They've now put me on Keytruda, and I'm praying for the best. Anyhow, all these treatments have been done by IV for a year now and my veins are shot. I'm having a port install next Thursday and I would just like to hear of other people's experience with the actual install procedure, recovery, and usage of. I should be upfront and say that I am a big, scared baby when it comes to medical and needle stuff, and all the needles this year did nothing to make me any braver towards the experience. Thanks for any responses.
