With that, I had my first fill today.
I have to admit it was kinda cool!
The Nurse Practitioner used a flora-scope to locate my port and stab this REALLY long needle into the port-a-cath that I have located beneath my skin. She added 1.8cc for a total of 1.8cc. It didn't sound like a lot to me, but they had me stand up and do a barium swallow...which I have to admit was kinda gross and cool all at the same time!
It was a cool experience and I have four weeks to adjust before my next fill in March. I posted some photos below!
