Response to Anticipation
The drip is a gravity feed except for a couple which were forced in. The whole process was painless. They have recommended a topical ointment to use before the next port infusion to ease pain - I am not sure I will use it - I have had so many needles stuck in me over the last several months that I am almost immune.
One other comment about this process at this point. Dr. Advani (the Stanford Specialist) commented to me last Wednesday that I was a very analytical person. I have appreciated that with each specialist I am now using from nurses to doctors - they spend a lot of time explaining things and then responding to questions.
Tomorrow is a shorter appointment and then a follow up on the 10. This seems like a very well monitored process. The second session of infusion is scheduled for the 23rd.
