I’m at home now, continuing recovery from surgery. Anesthesia for any kind of operation is a pain in the ass, so avoid it if you can. The nausea I suffered yesterday sucked big time. The operation was on my jaw and neck, so it’s hard for me to talk or swallow, thank goodness for liquid pain killer. Just overall unpleasantness to say the least.
This was because I had a melanoma mole on my jaw, near my ear, which was removed almost a year ago. I recently had a node nearby, right next to the parotid gland, swell up. During surgery it tested positive for melanoma, so they cut that out as well as half the parotid gland. That will have its own complications. I had avoided a chemo-like treatment called interferon at first, but not now.
So anyway, don’t get cancer.
