    Yes, I do have a port-a-cath.  I have had it for 11 years.  I was a military brat and the airmen would take our blood never doing it right.  They never offered it at the base hospital, so it was so painful.  It would always take three to four times. I didn’t get it until later in life and it was the best thing ever made.  Then some sickle cell patients begin dying of septic infections caused by their ports.  A lot of medical personnel did not know how to access them.  They would not flush them out with heparin before and after.  Now we are told the hospital doesn’t want to use them anymore because of infections.  Mine is only used at the infusion center for transfusion.

    It sounds so useful Colleen, it makes everything much easier when used and looked after correctly.

    I know a few people with it too who’d vouch for it. It’s reassuring as I may have to consider it myself one day.
