Infusa Port Pain

Hi -

My mother just had (Monday) an infusport implanted for her chemo treatments. Yesterday she was in a lot of pain - worse at night trying to get out of bed. Says she almost passed out. They were going to start her 2nd week of the second round of chemo treatments that day but her labs were too low. Is this degree of pain normal or should we be concerned?

Thank you,

I had pain with mine too

I am 40 years old and had a port inserted the end of october. I was frustrated because they put it in on my right subclavain (right collar bone area) I am right handed so that didn't help matters any. I also had some pain with it for a few days afterwards. The first day after the insertion was the worst but it decreased day by day.

I would say if it doesn't start feeling better in the next day or so she should call her doctor

If Not Better Tomorrow--Call

I had my port-a-cath done on a Friday and then my first chemo and by the time the numbing/local wore off I was fine and had no pain at all. Mine is so far down it's like in the breast area. Once in a while it hurts me but overall no problems--this isn't like my experience so I'd say call that Dr.

Infusa Port Pain

My portacath is also down in the left chest area. I also had minimal pain for 1 or 2 days after insertion. Please call the doctor. Any type of pain can be managed.
