Considering a mediport

Along with the chemotherapy you will be receiving fluids to hydrate you and medications to help prevent nausea and sometimes allergy symptoms (ex. itching).  If your IV access is difficult or painful for you, ask us about a central venous port (a more permanent IV access that is placed under the skin to be used for blood draws and chemotherapy). The port can be surgically removed when you complete all of your IV treatments.

Dental care

We recommend a routine dental cleaning before starting chemotherapy. It is best to avoid elective, invasive procedures while in treatment to prevent the risk of bleeding or infection.
