PiCC Lines
Hi!

I have 3 rounds of chemo for Breast Cancer and the veins i my chemo are are really sore!  I am getting a Picc Line put in on February 10th for the remaining 3 rounds.  Has anyone had one and experienced any problems or complications from having one put it!  Is the procedure painful?

Thanks
Rondee

Hi Diana,
I am so sorry to hear that you have so much pain in your veins due to chemo injections.
I hope that someone who had the PICC procedure done, will comment about their experience.
In the meantime,I have provided for you a site that deals extensively about it and I hope it helps a little.

Wishing you all the best and good luck!

Hi Zouuzi!

Nice to hear from you!  Hope you are doing well!  Thank you for responding to my question!  It has been a challenge for sure, Triple Negative Breast cancer, grade 3, seroma, fluid in my lung, now phelibitis in my arm.  Blah!  But anyways, won't complain too much as at least I am here responding to you!  Thank you for the site!

Kindly
Diana
