Hi, everyone. I had a total thyroidectomy this last Thursday. Stayed overnight in the hospital, now home. I guess with all my research, I thought that I'd have this simple surgery, rest for a few days and be back to my normal life. Well, it's been 3 days now. I'm still in bed, achy all over. Want to be out of bed, but it's difficult. Feels like I have a lump in my throat. Incision site is sore, but not too bad. How long does this last? When will I start feeling myself again? Thanks!
