About a month ago I went to the infusion area in the hospital to get my port flushed for my usual 4-6 week appointment and the nurse flushed my port with heparin, and then tried to draw blood, tried a scond time with no results, then she decided to inject TPA and still no results after waiting 45 minutes to see if it could be done, and still no results. She said she would record it in my records and sent me on my way home. Should I be concerned? Thanks for any info....
