I was very happy to get back to the pool today. About ten days ago, I noticed a very small opening (about the size of a pin head) along the suture line for my port. Despite my best efforts, it continued to open so I have been out of the pool to let it heal (The area was rubbing on my clothes so I now have some different dressings to put on it). I was a little nervous today because I was worried about rubbing with my suit. When I got out and removed the dressing, I was quite pleased to see that everything was dry, including the absorbable cushion. While I was out, I completed my fifth cycle of chemotherapy so fatigue was an issue today. Hopefully, I will be able to swim once more this week. This weekend my oldest has his summer champs so I'll be at a pool though not in one.
