Cancer Recurrence: Surgery For Port Placement

Surgery didn't go as well as anticipated. Evidently, under sedation, I was thrashing and moving about too much and wouldn't keep my head and neck in position for him to insert the line... he had to put me completely out. Of course, I have no recollection of this, which is odd because last time I was aware and talking (although I did try to nap a few times and woke myself up snoring).  This time, all I remember is being wheeled in, looking around, and thinking it looked like a big storage room... then people yelling at me to wake up.  This caused the surgery to last longer, they had to put a tube down my throat, I was in recovery longer, and the anesthesia made me dizzy and nauseated.

I'm in a lot of pain and I can't drive on the pain meds, so I'm going to try some Nuprin or Tylenol to see if I can get away with that instead. So far this is the worst of what I've gone thru. This is worse than the bone marrow biopsy. It freakin' hurts! And it's sore, like majorly bruised sore. I feel like I was in a car wreck, or got shot, or something.
