mediport scars

across the base of my throat is the mediastinoscopy scar.

the small (top) and large (bottom) incisions on my left side are from the mediport insertion.

the two small blistered spots (top) two large tears (center) and small blister (bottom, by port) are from the steri-strips.

the circular bulge is the port and the yellowing beneath it is some residual bruising.

i decided to start my treatment next thursday.  until then i’m just trying to live my life as normal and enjoy spending some extra time with my mother and daughter.
