Nearly nine months ago I had my thyroidectomy, and my scar is still on the mend!
I thought for those of you that are interested, I would post up some more photos documenting the progress of my scar!
I find it quite fascinating to actually look back on these and see how much it has healed – I hope I’m not the only one!
Just a few more months and it will have been a whole year since my thyroid was removed.
So has it been worth it?
I feel like my levels have just about evened up now (and now the summer is over and I’m not doing 50-hour weeks anymore, I’ll be able to find time to get a blood test to see if they have!)
I feel less tired all the time – yes I am still knackered as soon as it hits 9pm, but I think this is just the demands of seasonal work!
Therefore, the next few months will be the real teller!
Amazingly (touch wood and pray!!) I haven’t yet suffered from the weight gain I was expecting post-op.
Perhaps this is something to do with having this operation at such a young age and it is all going to hit me in a few years time? We shall see, but let’s hope not!
Now my scar has faded so much, I also decided to be brave and give my scraggly hair a chop!
Not so tidy at the moment….but at least I can’t hide by scar behind it and I have nothing to do but flaunt it!
