Taken two days after surgery. This doctor used stitches instead of staples. The scar is slightly smaller and a lot more comfortable.

Surgery took about 3 1/2 hours because my thyroid was very goitered and entangled in my neck. I also had a cyst that was growing on my esophagus. The Pathology report hasn’t come back on the cyst results, but it’s expected to be benign.

This is my scar the day after my thyroid was removed. I’m doing okay. No bowling tonight.

    Hi Jen. Surprisingly it wasn’t as intense as I expected it to be and all went well. I was home by noon today. It feels about like having a good sore throat. I asked the surgeon to put a couple eyes above the scar but I guess he thought 4-1/2 hours of surgery was sufficient enough. I dont look tired do I?

    Thank you both. I guess I got wound up on the morphene and hope nobody captured it on tape.
    Hi Marci, is that really what they say? ;~ )

    It was a total thyroidectomy. It was discovered that I had Hoshimoto’s disease (chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis).
