CREST syndrome 1991 (Scleroderma dominant), AP treatment since 2004. I’m going through a flare up, because i haven’t had my clindy iv’s for 7 months. It is almost impossible for a nurse to give me an iv anymore, because my veins have become tuff & role. I’m considering having a chest port inserted, but concerned about possible allergic reactionsn or infections long term.
Anyone want to share their experiences with a chest port for clindamycin IV infusions?
Has anyone suggested a so-called scleroderma infusion needle –these are extra thin and quite helpful -Ports can get infected —to clear up some medical gobbleyduk –Crest is scleroderma —Crest is just an acronym for a series of symptoms -I didnt understand this dominant phrase that your doctor must have used –
