Do any of you have one or have had one in the past? It seems that I am in the hospital way too much/getting bloodwork or infusions. I started my first of 5 iron infusions (all done in the next 10 days) and met an older gent that has a port. The nurse showed me how to flush it and it's really not all the bad. The guy said it has saved his arm/hand veins a lot of agony. I've had 5 blood transfusions since November and the one I had last week was really painful. I was clenching the bed the whole time and my nurse was brushing it off.
Any input would be helpful. I looked through the forum and found a few posts on the Crohn's forum but wanted to see if any Ucer's have had a port.
