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.
