In brief: Port

If your veins are hard to find, and you need the treatments, best would be a ports catch or picc line.
These are central vein accesses and mean no more sticks for you once placed.

In brief: 2 Ideas!

1) keep hydrated, drink plenty of fluids 2) you may need a port-a-cath, easy access for chemotherapy and IV fluids, i recommend it.
