This is a feeling that someone is pressing down on my throat and choking me. I can eat, swallow, and drink but it feels like the esophagus is somewhat constricted. It started well before I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and continued on for about 10 months after I had a thyroidectomy in Feb. 2010. It finally went away, but came back about two months ago. After surgery, I was told it was probably scarring and that it might go away in time. I've just completed the LID, thyrogen shots and WBS and received results today. Will need to redo the whole process, but this time with the I131. Has anyone experienced this uncomfortable pressure? Any thoughts from your doctors on what it might be and how to get rid of it?
