I have been advised to get a portacath before I start first line chemo due to very poor veins. It's 6 cycles of carboplatin only so once every 3 weeks but weekly bloods. My question is with regards to removal of the devise. I woukd like to have it removed when finished as I don't need the constant reminder nor do I plan to have a recurrence😂. Is removal a big deal and in the event of needing it again if there is reoccurrence will there b a problem with reinsertion
