The surgery itself went well. I stayed a little longer than most due to throid storm.
But I retunred back to work after about 10 days.

Remember, it was not due to surgery for not going back after a week, but the thyroid storm. No issues.

So far, looks like 1 week and 4 weeks are the average with 2 and 3 in between.
