WELCOME TO THE THYROID DISORDERS COMMUNITY!  Others please jump in .. many on this community know the pain of neck incisions  .. Please stop by to say hello to Dave even if you don't have an answer to his specific condition ....

You mention near the thyroid .. have they checked all your thyroid levels throughout this ordeal including your parathyroids before and during the surgery time.

I am so sorry you are going through this.  

I had an abcessed incision after my thyroid surgery coupled with an infectious granuloma 1/4" above the original incision .. I cannot imagine the pain you are in.

MedHelp is a terrific place and many will be here to help you through this difficult time.  

Regards,

I would take the slides from pathology and get a second opinion at the best institution you can find.  I meant to post that earlier to you . This is what we do here on thyroid when biopsy results and results of surgery are questionnable or need second opinion to be certain of the findings ?

I agree with Cheryl.

A second opinion would be a good idea.

Thanks for the invite.
Makes it easier to keep in touch.
You can send me a message anytime you want to talk.

I hope your doctors are networking with their colleagues to try and find an answer for you.

Hi Dave. Welcome to our community. I also agree with having a second opinion. When I had my thyroid biopsy I had the slides sent to a teaching hospital for a second opinion.

Stay with us, you will find everyone here is wonderful and caring.

I hope you do get answers to what's going on.  On 'this happened to this person and this happened and this happened...,'  oh, don't go there.  Don't scare yourself like that.  I'm sure though, we have all had those thoughts, I know I have.  We will be here for you to get through it all.  Welcome.

In addition to getting the pathology and slides reviewed by a second, outside source I'd really suggest that you get a PET scan

Yes, a Pet scan would be a wonderful idea that Utah mentions.  That is very important ... probably even moreso than a local CT scan of the neck.

--> Just a reminder to all that the incision you see on Dave's profile is NOT a Thyroid Incision <-----

Dave had major surgery to remove other than thyroid mass ...

Thyroid incisions are in a different area AND are nearly invisible in a year's time and within a few week's time fade dramatically.

I got a few PM's from members in this regard and wanted to clarify this .. if anybody would like to see a thyroid surgical incision, post a ? .. quite a few of us have pics that we can put up in our profile to share.

Dave, your scar will heal nicely .. it looks good for the extent of your surgery .. just needed to clarify for our members the different local, extent of thyroid vs. yours.
