I believe it's a hematoma. A dr. looked at it and said it would eventaully get reabsorbed and go away but it can take weeks and they HURT! So this is why I have pain from it.
A week after my TT, I suddenly developed a large bump right under the incision, with no pain. I rushed to the surgeon's office and he said that I must have taken aspirin and possibly picked up something heavy, (I had done both), which caused a hematoma. He said that eventually, my body would absorb it. The following week I went back to the doctor and he again assured me that it would eventually go away. It has been four weeks since my surgery and the lump is still there. I had part of my thyroid removed four months ago due to a cancerous tumor, and had no problems whatsoever, I had a full recovery within a month after surgery, so I had expected the same. I take levothyroxine 75 mg have plenty of energy for my 70 years and feel fine otherwise. Worried about the lump!
I am post full thyroidectomy 9 days now and surgery went well so I'm told however I feel ok just concerns with a large lump top of insertion. It is soft but hard running along along scar. I am waiting to see my GP tomorrow. Anyone else have this problem.
