Diana- I know you have my spreadsheet, but wanted to point out that number 6, Lynn, has had good success with 5FU with Cisplatin.

My PICC line also got infected, along with a blood clot, so I had the line removed and a porta-cath inserted. I haven't had any problems with it (although my first porta-cath got plugged because of inadequate flushing - it needs flushing every 1-2 months if not being used).

Has anyone else had any problems with a porta-cath?
