A had half of my thryoid removed five months ago, I had a cancerous tumor, four months later I had a complete thyroidectomy because of the findings, the other half was clean. A week after my surgery I developed a hematoma, I was told that eventually my body will absorb it. It has now been a month and I still have the lump, although smaller. The scar it perfect and otherwise I don't feel bad. Is this something that usually takes a long time for my body to absorb? Is that normal after a hematoma? I am presently out of town and myI general physician wants me to have a neck sonogram when I get back at the end of the month. I will also have an appointment with the surgeon and the endocrinologist. WORRIED!!!
