I had a procedure on Thursday to get a port for dialysis. My hand is numb but hurting and right breast is swollen. Is this normal?

I suggest that you contact the person who placed the catheter or port and express concern about this. I would not expect these symptoms or signs to be present after placement of a dialysis catheter.
