Feeling a bit anxious

Getting a little big scared now as it's less than a week until they put the PICC line in. I know they say that it will make it easier for me to have my chemo blah blah blah but what I don't understand is this ... during my last chemo my arm swelled and bruised because of the chemo drugs, how will giving me a PICC line stop this swelling and bruising occuring anywhere else - infact it will be nearer my heart - how is that safe? I know I will have to ask these questions before I have it done next week and if I'm still not happy with the answers I guess I will have the right to ask for chemo in the normal way. I've been hearing about people getting infections because of the PICC line etc. I need to ask a lot more questions I think.

Oh and for those of you who haven't seen my crazy new hairstyle here you go - very fetching eh?

Dear Dee, You look beautiful, now we can see your gorgeous eyes... and about your picc line i was scared too but the procedure was quite quick and painless, and from then on chemo was a breeze to receive (The only problem i had was with the water-proof dressings as i am allergic and i kept getting blisters) In the beginning i had the very same thoughts what if it gets lose and goes to my heart!!! But after about a week or so those thoughts stopped... and believe it or not now all such things are just a small memory... What stays with me more in my memory is the people i met along the way and the small kindness of nurses/medical staff and how my life began again on a new and wonderful path beginning with the chemo journey... Thinking of you and sending you strength of spirit sweet bloggy friend x
