Out of surgery...

So far so good. Lots of itching with the pre-op antibiotics. Surgeon couldn't place port in my jugular as preferred due to scar tissue (???). So he went subclavian which has higher risk of pinching and blood clots. He puts 95% in the jugular. You had to know I'd fall in the 5%...let's just hope that falling in the minority stats holds out for me.

I am, of course, pleased that you made it through this surgery okay. I am sorry to learn that the port placement was not the optimal/preferred version. I hope it heals quickly and that no complications result.
All my love.

FYI - Ray said your jugular could have scar tissue from the central line (make that plural as I remember you were "lucky" enough to get two!) Allison
