Has any one heard of the port being placed on the arm?? Skin/nipple spearing, bilateral Mastectomy with immediate reconstruction; the right Brest where the lump was found healed perfectly. The left side which was cancer free did not heal. The permanent implant was replaced with an expander implant and it did not heal either. The repeated reversal of the reconstruction was taking a toll on my moral and was also delaying the treatment. We decided to leave the left breast area to heal so quimo can begin. Once completed, the reconstruction will be attempted once again. Originally, it was thought that I did not need a port because the lymph nodes were clean. However, I do have to have one implanted and will done on Wed.

right salphingo-oophorectomy, appendectomy- August 2011
Had surgery two days ago to remove what was thought to be an ovarian fibroma tumor through laparoscopy. Doctor did not remove tumor as it is cancerous and has spread throughout the abdomen. That is all I know right now. Surgery is scheduled for a week from Tuesday. Then chemo directly into abdomen. Not sure how to proceed.
Dec. 6, 2010: Went into the Marin General ER with (what I thought) was bad food poisoning. Turned out to be a carcinoid tumor wrapped around my intestines and appendix. The doctor removed part of the lower intestine, tumor and appendix. He put it all in a bucket and showed it to my wife in the waiting room. It took about five months to recover from all that. My system is still kinda tender. Summer 2011: Right hemicolectomy at Stanford to remove some lymph nodes that showed signs of cancer. It took a few months before the sutures really healed and longer before I felt I could get back into a normal routine.
