    Charlene,
    I wanted to share with you the porta-cath experience. I think you are making a good choice in having that 1-day outpatient procedure.
    I have rolling veins, so I can relate to what you are saying. When I have blood work done now, I instruct the lab technician to go more toward my wrist and use a butterfly needle to take the blood. In regards to the porta-cath, I had one inserted when I requirwd dialysis. It is meant to be a temporary measure to see if they can reverse your dialysis before they insert something in your arm that ismore permanent. It is painless because they give you a local anesthetic. You will be conscious and may feel some pressure, but you should feel no pain. Just relax, put your faith in God and ask him to direct the hands of the doctors whoile giving them skillful and Godly wisdom. In case you are wondering, I was fortunate and blessed that I was able to reverse my renal failure condition and was able to get off dialysis in about 2 1/2 months. wish you much success and I am thanking God for the wonderful things He plans to do in your life.
