Hi all! New here! Im about 2 1/2 weeks out from surgery, had my thyroid and lymph odes removed on the right side. From reading some posts on this site I feel like I didn't get enough information about the surgery and side affects after, but I don't go back to the doc for another 3 weeks. I have been feeling extreamly tired, yesterday I couldn't even get out of bed, I could also have a bug so I'm not sure if that was part of it. I have also been feeling very down, and easily stressed. My right arm is killing me and I can barely use it, which also goes up into my neck and shoulder. Under my chin down to my incesision is numb but at the same time feels extreamly brused and is very painful when I do not take my pain meds. I have tried heating pads on my shoulder and will be starting physical therapy soon. Any insight on how long these issues will last or your experiences would be great.
