Considering a port for Inflectra infusions


Mon, April 05, 2021 4:50 PM

I have been on Remicade and now Inflectra for 19 years. Because of the long-term infusions, blood draws (and probably my age! 64), my veins can be difficult to access. My Gi is letting me consider a port even though my infusions are 8 weeks apart.
Any advice??
