which had been pressing badley on my trachea and really affected my breathing-totalmass weighed over 3kilo .Breathing much improved already but choking a lot of the time still and speech is very odd (sound like the dog that says sausages!!) also speech comes and goes in force. Im told that they didnt cut the larynical nervers and they could be seen quite clearly during surgery. Also told that sometimes windpipes that have been restricted can be quite floppy after surgery. Cut on neck about 6-7inch but looks very neat. My questions are i have a disolving running stitch under steri strips in my neck,not looked at yet but do you think it would be safe to shower/wash my hair and perhaps remove strips tomorrow (day 7) or should i leave longer as not sore or anything. When do i start rubbing stuff in to help with scarring and what would you suggest ,
The choaking starts with a tickle ,feels like you have some thing stuck on back of throat-its very hard to cough and speak normally, is this normal and how long does it take to improve?
Was put on 150mg Levothyroxine after surgery and had bloods taken today at doctors, im very tired still but was over 4hrs in op, ive not been too bad so far but feel very shaky and getting odd hot flushes late afternoon/evening . i take levo 2hrs before food and other tabs in morning - is this me just getting used to being on medication?
Still feelin tearfull and tired but it is early days. Any help or advice please
