D306: CENTRAL LINE / PORT REMOVAL – CHEMOTHERAPY

This is not a naked video…haha. Perception can be deceiving.
My brother called me irongirl when I told him it was made from titanium. It has been my companion since 16th June 2015. In a way, it is like saying goodbye to an old friend. It makes me walk a little bit lighter on my new adventure of life.

That being said, my fridge is still full with appointments letter from the hospital.

I have a handful appointments in May. I will have my 3 monthly scan result on 18th May which will be a major milestone for me.

5th May : Mole removal. (I’m picking the safe option. I remember Gavan’s advise to take it out. By the way, this is a reminder to get your mole checked)
12th May : 3 months follow up scan
Exercise Physio @ 11am
MRI @1pm and CT Scan @3.45pm
18th May : Oncologist consultation

Funny story of the day : LOVE BOMB

Yesterday, I got thrown a love bomb.

She shouted as she got out of the lift,” Good luck with your port today!”

The funny thing is, she was in the lift with me. She didn’t say anything and waited til she got out haha. Maybe because the lift was packed and I was escorting this elderly lady who were petrified of lift. I have no idea… but it makes me laugh 🙂

My brain was slow, I couldn’t recall who she is. Otherwise, I’d have hugged you on that lift! I can only assume you are following my page. So, I want to thank you for making me smile.

I’m throwing love bomb back at you.

PS: I’m sending special love bomb for Aaron Cumming, Tahnee Cumming, Tony Southwell, Lisa Southwell, Billi McCall , Amanda Antonellos, Ally Antonellos , Kylie Bux Collier , Mark Collier , Linda Fahey , Jesse Fahey , Jacques le Roux , Sarah le Roux , and my new friends Tim, Tania and Karen. As always, CDU and my ward 9 awesome gang!

Here is a challenge for everyone reading this.
Let’s throw a love bomb today 😀

D306: PORT REMOVAL – the aftermath

The procedure was pretty quick. It was probably 20 minutes or so. I was given local anesthetic. Taking it out was less painful than putting it in as they only had to open my chest. I had 2 incisions for implanting the port, on my chest and on my neck for the line. Good thing is, I was given happy gas 😀 Not that it makes much difference for me haha. No gas on the removal but it was not that bad. My pain threshold has gone way up due last December incident from radiation burn.

I’ll have to upload the rest of videos tomorrow. Rest time for me. Night lovely people 🙂

Tomorrow will be the day my double port will be removed. It’s been months and I’m still bruised. It’ll be nice to finally sleep without the implants.

If you are at Peter Mac, hugs are most welcome 🙂

PS: Once, you’re discharged remind yourself to ask about your port. You are meant to flush it every 3-5 weeks.
