Wearing Chemo Pump. Looking For A Button Up Thermal Undershirt.

February 17, 2014 | By | Reply More

Reader in search of a special button-up top for her husband who is going through radiation.

Question for you – My husband is going through radiation and chemo and has a chemo pump that he is wearing attached to his power port that they have located in his upper left chest, just below the shoulder.

Here’s the question. Does anyone make a button up thermal underwear top only?

My husband is wanting to work for the next few weeks until he gets too tired and his job takes him in and out of his car each day.

How about a button up or snap up t-shirt? The only thing I have found that comes close is long john thermal underwear.

Thanks Shari

heya shari — good to hear from you and thanks for sending in your question.

if you’re looking for a full button up, i don’t know of anything off hand but my inclination is to suggest you start looking for long or short sleeve henleys.

most henleys i’ve seen only have 3-4 buttons on them, which means they are a pull-over.

the only other thing i came across was a full-button thermal top/bottom:

not sure if that thermal will work, but it’s pretty close to what you asked for.

let me know if that works for you and if you decide to purchase, let me know how it works out for your husband. ok?

Thanks for getting back to me. We have gone with the henley for now. I found some at a local store.

Button up tops for Thermal Underwear might be a new category for the market place to look into.

Just an idea.
