Sorry for being such a terrible blog-updater! Anyway, just wanted to say that the surgery went perfectly on Friday. The port was removed completely (sometimes part of it becomes attached and cant be taken out!) and the old scar tissue was also cut out and a new smaller and neater scar has taken its place. Scott had wanted to keep the port as a memento but there are strict rules that mean the port is sent to pathology for testing and then destroyed. The surgeon did however take a photo and give it to us. Its gross, with little bits of 'meat' attached to it. Its nasty. I think David is planning on scanning it to post on here for Sandie to see. LOL.
