HI, 5 days out of port insertion and my whole chest is yellow. looks like a bruise. Anyone else had this experience? 

  • Hi  and welcome to the Online Community but so sorry to see you joking us.

    I have had 2 Hickman Lines (actually 4 as both had to be changed) for my blood cancer treatments and had the same yellow bruises….. it all came ok after a period of time.

    Navigating the cancer journey can be such a stressful and challenging time but getting support from others who are dealing with the ‘exact same' cancer type can help a lot.

    The Community is actually divided into dedicated Support Groups (Discussion Rooms) but you don’t say what type of cancer you have but if you care to have a look through THIS LIST you will find all our many dedicated cancer support groups listed.

    These groups are safe places to talk to others who may have a similar diagnosis, treatment experience, to ask questions and get support from members who are navigating the same journey.
