pain after port placement
Im starting chemo next week, and last wednesday "the port" was placed on the left side of my chest. Since it was placed, Ive been having some fairly bothersome left shoulder and neck pain (almost all the way from the port thru my upper back, and from the neck to the shuolder.) The placement site also hurts, mostly when I stand up, after being in the same position for a while. It feels like if it is pulling a muscle or something, Pain meds doesnt help... had anyone experience this pains after port placement. From what Ive read for most people it feels like it wasnt there. not my case, though. If you experience any kind of pain after port placement, what did you felt, what was done, for how long did it hurt, why is this happenning???
