Hi Maria, my experience was different than Mimi's. I had the port put in as an out patient, I was in and out of the clinic in less than 4 hours. I had no discomfort at all and didn't need any pain medication. I slept just fine and didn't have any pain or discomfort when they accessed the port for chemo. Everyone has a different story to tell with all the different treatments, tests and experiences with BC. Don't be too worried about port placement, it is easier to have the port than being stuck with needles over and over again. Best to you.
