I posted last week about having trouble with my port that had been placed in 4 months ago.

Last year when I treated I had a different type of port and my body just did not like it so this time I was given a medi-port so it could just stay in "forever" he said.

Well, I was treating and having troubles. It was leaking out and hurting. Problem after problem.

This led to a dye study. Which I was called several days later and told blood clot and had to come out tomorrow.

I wake up from the surgery and am told that it had broken off and was around my heard and that I had to be transferred to another hospital for a heart cath to remove the wandering piece.

I had been having what I thought was anxiety etc. Well turns out that was heart issues.

The rogue part of the part was removed and heart returned to normal.

Its a week later and I seem to be fine except for some brusing and stitches.

I do feel very lucky though and will treat in a different manner. Nothing else being placed in my body..

yourtroubl,

I was wonder what happen with your port. My goodness, good thing they were able to locate the piece that broke off and get it out of your body. I have read where that has happened albeit chances are very rare.

It seems like you have had a lot of problems with ports.

I'm glad that it is all working out for you and your heart is back to normal.

So glad the surgery was successful and that you are handling it so well.

Wishing you a speedy recovery from that part of the Lyme journey!
