I had a PICC line a few years ago (nutrition, not cancer*). I smiled when I read that you were having yours out. I then read that you could have your colostomy reversed, and nearly shed a tear, as I have also been through that (20 years ago). Congrats on the progress Matey, and It's so good that you're willing to share details on what can be such intimate problems.

*I was being 'fed' by my PICC line for a while, I was pretty out of it. My wife was sat by me one day in hospital as I was being 'fed', and asked what it was like. Bearing in mind, I was in and out of consciousness, in a very bad way, and facing an uncertain future (at the time, being measured in days) I managed to reply that it tasted like crap, before promptly nodding off. Due to my condition, she never thought twice, and believed me.

I don't remember any of this, and the story was told to me some time after the event by my missus. I laughed out loud, and asked her how the hell would I taste something that was being fed directly into my heart via a tube in my arm.

There was some indignation.

To this day, she will tell you that even at my worst, I can still be a complete C***.
