Well, I found out the scarring is probably from the hiatus hernia...

Hi MoMomsa,

My thyroid was removed in Feb. 2010 and I continued to have "pressure" (feeling as if someone is pushing on my throat)for about a year. I think it's scarring from the thyroidectomy. It's back again and I can't figure out why. Are you experiencing pressure?
