Ports/tell me your pain level after placement
I work in dept that places ports using conscience sedation. we normally don't give pain scripts to our patients after port placement.
Then my docs put port in me. I had to send my kids into my dept later that day to pick up pain script for me. It really felt painful/ tender for at least a day. I had a left port and they are trickier to put in. take longer. and my right side was allready having issues from the mastectomy.
So if you'll could tell me your experiences-good and bad. I think I'll also call our past port patients to get a better feel to see if we're meeting there pain needs.
tell me side of port, pain that needed something besides tylenol/motrin,
