OK I am whining, sorry. I have gotten a nasty cold and it is just amplified 100 zillion times by the fact that I STILL have a "lump" in my throat from my surgery 6 weeks ago. You know, the one that feels like you have a giant pill stuck going down ?? So, this is making me crazy because I have a bad sore throat and it hurts to swallow anyway, but with the lump there too it is really bothering me. I am curious how long it takes for that lump to go away and if I am just being an impatient whiney sickey mommy.
Ok so I'm reading all of these boards about this lump in everyone's throat but not seeing any solutions or answers??? I had half of my thyroid removed along with a 9cm nodule. Yes it was huge! I have had this lump feeling for over a year, which brought me to my Dr. who then removed it. My surgery was 2 weeks ago and not only is that lump feeling still there, but now, where my incision is, I have thick, hard scar tissue that feels like a bar is laying on my neck! Can someone please answer the questions of what is the lump?? And is this thick hard scar tissue normal?? I can't sleep, I cough constantly and when I sneeze, it seems to move the lump. Which hurts, but feels like mucus. When I try to cough it up, I taste blood. This *****!!
