I’m not on remicade yet I have terrible veins also.
I have had to go to the local hospital 1-2x per month for the last year for special treatments
to care for my out of control migraines. I did have a temp tunnel line that lasted 2 months but they are not permanent. Once you find out the meds you need, the port is the way to go!
The meds I’ve needed monthly have sclerosed my veins to nothing where now when I go even IV therapy are unable to get a IV line in. They have tried to come down from the ICU with an ultrasound and I have nothing for a picc line even.
I know what it’s like to get picked at 6-9 times then still not have a line in. 😞
I wish you good luck with your port placement.
Wishing you sunnier days ahead 🤞💗
