Shelby - Hi, I'm new to this board and am just doing some surfing on topics. I had my port placed on Wed 1/23 and felt pretty good that day except for not being able to lie on my back to sleep. However, around day 2 I started experiencing a pain in the middle of my back (heart level) and in my neck around where you check you pulse. This hurt a lot and went on for several days. Finally, after a week I went in and they did an ultrasound of my neck and x-ray'd my chest. Found nothing - started crying feeling like some kind of hypochondriac..... Long story short, about 2 days later the pain started getting better and now (2 weeks post port placement) I no longer have any issues. I was told it was probably muscle strain due to the procedure to insert the port.
