It could be the scar tissue and how it formed. I had that feeling for quite a while after my surgery. My surgeon suggested I start to gently massage the scar which I have done and, for me, that helped.
my TSH levels are within normal limits, i'm 3 wks post op and i have the swollowing issue too. im thinking that theres a lesion in there from being intubated and hoping it goes away soon. why cant a person find anything online about this stuff. also since i woke up from surgery ive had a cough and my lung function is signifficantly decrease. i become so short of breath it's rediculouse and imbarrassing. anyone else have that issue?
I am 4 weeks post-op TT and was feeling tightness and what felt like a lump so I called the Dr and he gave me 5 days of prednisone, thought that might help. Has anyone else had experience with prednisone being helpful?
