Sick of the "lump" in my throat

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.
Thanks.
Darla

It can take a few months.  Try some of that OTC throat spray (Chloraseptic, etc.), and lots of lozenges - it really helps.

Yeah, I know that feeling well. Don't you hate it?
The best thing I have found so far is an anathaestic throat lozenger.

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 *****!!
