I apologize that I haven't been on much in the last 2 days. I've been resting today. Just woke from a Loooong nap.

Surgery went well Thursday morning to place a Centrl line Porta Cath (Power Port) under my left collarbone. thre is 2 incisioins. I actually felt well enouh to make Strawberry Jam yesterday.

Most of what I am feeling (discomforrt) is from bruising in upper bacck, arm pit, front of arm and shoulder. I've had one vicodin and that's it. It helped take pain away.

What frightens me is the fact i'm having this new port accessed on Wednesday next week for the next 3 days. feel I need more time for healing.

The reason for the chst port is because they were having a hrd time finding veins for my IV treatments in the hospital for the MG.

Thank you so much for your payers.

    I'm happy they gave you a port. I've been on IVIG every 18 days for 3 days (3-4 hours) for 2 years and the Drs won't give me a port. They're afraid of infection and I have MG attacks if I take antibiotics. How often do you do IVIG? and do you take Mestinon. That med has caused a 82 lb loss. My stomach isn't happy. I can't take steroids I have 4th stage liver disease both are from tamoxifen drug taken after breast cancer. emoticon
