This is more a tip than question. My neck and incision were swollen in the hospital. They offered to get me ice...usually I hate ice on anything but it really helped! The only problem was the lumpy ice hurt so i had to empty some out. When I was released I asked my Mom to get me ice packs from walgreens like we had as kids at school. They don't freeze...stay squishy like a gel. They have been perfect! I have posted daily pics so I can see how my head is healing...even if you don't like ice you might give it a try.
