Thyroid Surgery

I had my thyroid totally removed 5 weeks ago and I still have off & on pain......there is also still swelling on the front of my neck and there is a lump where the thyroid use to be.....is this normal? The scar is also very dark in colour?
I am just concerned with the pain issues and the lump!! I havent called my ear, nose & throat doctor because Im thinking this is normal but as the weeks go by the lump is still there?? I also dont have feeling in the front of my neck either?? I have attached a picture of my neck from a week after my surgery so you can see where the incision is.
