well we finally got clearance from cardiologist + vascular surgeon. So Friday he will install it. My husband found a knowlegeable male nurse who will come to house to help us lear how to use the "ball" for daily Rocephan. After 24 yrs I am praying that it works and I can at long last do the things I have dreamed about for so long. I am a bit nervous!

any advice???

I have port so I would assume the surgery is similar. It is a breeze. Yours should be easier than mine as you are just having the line put in and I had to have a pocket made for the port.

Using the rocephin ball is extremely easy. Sometimes it takes 3 months to see results. I felt very tired when I first started rocephin. The nurse will make sure you are comfortable using it.

The fatigue passed after 6 weeks and then I started noticing subtle improvements. Everyone is different in how they react to treatment.

Praying that you will get good results from the treatment.

Just sharing my experience, I am not a doctor.

Thanks for the input and support. I did have a port for 6 years for IV pain meds so I am glad that I did not have to do that again.

Now I guess I have to find the patience and faith to wait for the results. Hope to hear from more of you who had positive responses!!!!
