I've been wondering the same thing. My wife has CF and has resisted getting a port... she is fine with getting a pic line when needed. I was wondering if it is easier to take a shower with a port. When the port is accessed, is it accessed continually for 2 weeks?When do you decide to get a port? What is the deciding factor? This is her 3 rd hospital stay in 9 months. What are the pros & cons of a port for a cf-fer?
