Learning About Breast Cancer
The pain will go away. My port hurt for a day or two. I tried to take one percocet, but i had terrible side effects. Tylenol helped to take some of the discomfort away. My biggest problem was sleeping. It took a while for me to be able to sleep on the side with my port. Over time, it did get easier. I dont know if it was a coincidence, but as soon as I had my first chemo treatment, my port felt so much better. I've had my port in for about 9 months, and it's a part of me, I forget it's even there! I will be happy though when I can get it removed! Good luck to you!
