Surgery is Over!!

I had my Port-a-Cath taken out today. A lot of people asked me what the port under my skin in the pictures from last July/August looked like. Well, some people may think it’s a little sick, but I kept it after it was removed this morning (don’t worry it’s been cleaned and sterilized). It was attached to my chest wall and had a tube attached that ran into my Subclavian vein to feed into the Superior Vena Cava. I just took a picture of the top view, but it is about 1/2 inch thick.

Below is a website that explains the Port-a-Cath

It really is a simple procedure. I was awake when they inserted it (kinda). I was out cold for the removal.
