It really does depend on what your insurance says. When I had my P-Line put in, I went over to the Lyme Center, they did my first IV drip for me there, then I had to go to the office 3 times a week and the other 4 days I was given all the supplies (syringes, heprin, alcohol wipes, lines, and the frozen abx) I had to bring a cold type bag so I could keep it cold, it really was not a big deal cause I lived pretty close. I was a little nervous at first, which is only natural, but then you start to get the hang of it, and I would drip in the living room while watching TV. Hubby installed a hook that was attached to a speaker in the house where I could put my IV bag. But then I know some people from the office that had to go every day because of their insurance.
