Hi to all our warriors.
Had a Portacath fitted six months ago and never had a problem.
Went along last week for bloods prior to Chemotherapy and no blood could be drawn from the port. Flushing was not a problem but was not up for giving any of the red stuff!
Had an X-ray to check all was ok, which is was.
A solution was administered over an hour into the port but No it wasn’t having any of it!
Been back to The Christie for more blood tests this morning, and it still wasn’t playing ball.
It took six attempts to get into a vein so my bloods could go off to the labs.
I looked like a giant cotton wool ball coming out of the blood room 😬😬😬
Has anyone else had this problem and if so any advice?
Thanks in advance for any help. Xx
