Asking for central line port to administer meds

I don't see the question here. I saw it on FB somewhere.  Patient was saying the chemo nurse had a hard time finding a vein each time. Don't be afraid to ask your oncologist to see a surgeon who can insert an IV line into your chest- in OR. This is a very simple procedure and very quick.,don't be afraid of asking for what you need. Take the control you have. It's your body. Don't forget to hold onto that!

For the people I, Nesie, was in touch with, I want you to know that because of a FB mix-up, I've been blocked for now. If you'd like, leave me a message with your personal email in it and I'll reply. I hope I can fix this problem. Nothing to fear from me, I had IIB ovarian cancer in 2014 and breast cancer in2006. Also I was an RN for 25 years.
