First of all I wanted to say thank you to soccerfreaks, SASH & Victor for easing my mind about the neck dissection. All went well, they did a right side neck dissection and removed a mass and from what I'm being told , close to 100 nodes. All nodes removed were clean and the mass was dead.
The question I have is how long before the swelling goes down, I had my surgery on March 19th, came home on the 21st with drain tubes and stitches, all were removed on March 27th. The only real problem I'm having is the swallon lump under my chin, will this go away?
