Surgery Take 2

I went back under the knife yesterday, it didn't run as smoothly as the first surgery.
I had to be at the hospital by 9am which meant I wasn't allowed any food after 12pm on Wednesday night and couldn't drink anything after 7am. I was eventually wheeled into theatre at 12:30.
The anaesthetist took two goes at getting the needle in and created a couple of bruises, the last time I had an intern and she was brilliant.
When I woke afterwards I had a massive headache and felt nauseous, last time I didn't experience either. The student nurse pumped a bag of fluids through, but I couldn't have anymore painkillers until after 5:30. I have had very little pain from the incision, just a bit of discomfort.
I'm home now, resting, drinking plenty of water and a few doses of panadol. 
So what's next, in about 4 weeks I'll start chemo, you'll probably get to see a bald me, wonder what my noggin will look like?

Just want to add my wishes for strength to face the coming year. I have been through surgery and radiation but not chemo so know how you are feeling a little. Be positive is about the best advice and also be kind to yourself. Keep stitching... yes it helps. All the best.
