Ports And Picc Lines


Recommended Posts

My Dr wanted to stay away from the Picc because it's not good for long term and the infection risks. But the Port wasn't that painful. To change the needles my nurse uses emla cream(Lidocaine). So even the change in needles is painless. I found it does help me some. But I'm sure others will have great luck with a port for Saline. My biggest complaint is it takes 4 hours per liter. So even if I was feeling better I'm still in bed for4 to 8 hours at a time on average. But like any treatment theres advantages and disadvantages.
