I had a hemithyroidectomy a few weeks ago and they found Papilliary Cancer so i am having he other side of my thyroid removed on the 28th.
I understand that they will go back in the same place and just reopen up the scar that I have and remove the other side.
Should I expect the experience to be pretty much the same as last time in every way? I actually found it not too bad at all - no pain to speak of and the wrost part for me was the scratchy throat caused by the intubation!
With the scar having been used twice instead of just the once affect how it looks and heals long term?
