Boobs vs. Port: Smackdown. A Call for Info!
I need info from other Cystic gals! I am considering getting a port (or port-a-cath, which is an entry way for IV meds that stays in a person, long term), but love my chest the way it is. Meaning, I am a boob girl. I am fine to admit it, my chest is my best asset. I wear v-neck shirts and necklaces and love love love my body from waist to shoulders. I am not interested in fucking it up. I like it. Not because guys like it (I don't have big boobs even,), I just like it for me. Always have. It's a staple of my fashion sense and my sense of femininity.
Boobs and Port. Give me the info!
Does it feel weird if a man hugs you with a port? Can you feel it pressing? Does it hurt?
Can a man feel it with his hands? (When it's not being used for IV meds, I mean)
Does it heal closed between treatments? Like if you had 3 months with no IVs, would it heal up?
When you are doing IVs, how much "geography" of your chest does it take up? Is it like a PICC in your chest? Are you destined to sweatshirts and woolie sweaters while on IVs?
GIVE IT TO ME STRAIGHT, GALS!!
