I am asking this question for my Mother-In-Law. She had a portacath inserted wrong. It had been bothering her since the time they put it in. She had one radiation treatment. Come to find out, it was put in wrong and who knows where the radiation went in her body. Is this something to be concerned with? Like I said, she received only one treatment before they figured out the problem and removed it. Can the radiation cause damage to other organs in her body? After removing it and then receiving several more radiation treatments, she developed phnemonia (sp?). Could that one treatment gone wrong have caused the phnemonia?
Thanks for any information you can give me. If you have any web links I can read more on, I would appriciate it. I have been trying to find out what I can. But, there is so much out there and nothing directly dealing with this issue.
Thanks for everything.
