Since I first started writing about my thyroidectomy, I have received a phenomenal amount of response from people about it!
So if you have stumbled across this blog with the sole interest of reading about thyroid removal, then to make it things a bit easier you can click here for the whole story!
It’s now been a month since my last post, and nearly two months since my operation!
My scar has faded considerably now, and the bio-oil usage is still going strong!
I have been applying it day and night as I have found my scar is still feeling a bit tight and this really soothes it.
After the operation, I noticed the majority of my neck was numb, but now I have a lot of the feeling back. However, the area immediately above my scar still remains completely numb to the touch!
I have hardly any pain now – sometimes in the evenings if I have been turning my head a lot then it tends to be a little painful, but nothing paracetamol won’t soothe!
After the op, for a while I felt like someone was pushing on my neck whenever I lay down or got out of breath – like a horrible pressure feeling.
I have found this has eased now, but occassionally I still get it.
All in all, I am feeling so much better after my surgery!
My consultant has given me the all clear, and hopefully my thyroxin intake has finally been adjusted to the right amount!
I’ve been really pleased with the responses I’ve had from people from these posts, and I hope if you yourself have just had or are having thyroid surgery that this will put you at ease a bit.
