the port has left the body

I can officially say my port has been removed. I had it taken out on Friday. It was much easier coming out than going in. The incision is a little sore but that is it. When I first had the port my entire arm was sore for several days. I tried to see if I could keep the port but the nurse said something about having to check for all the parts to make sure they got it all, which I hope they did. The port did help with chemo but now it is gone and that is the last sign of cancer for me. I am now trying to lead a cancer free life and trying not to look back but look ahead to see where God leads me!
