I am 17 and getting a hemithyroidectomy soon through the NHS. Not going to lie, I am quite worried about haha. I have a few question about what happens post-op; is it difficult to eat after the surgery and if so, after how many days does the pain die down? And also how many nights will I have to stay in the hospital for after the operation, as on some blogs I saw people left the same day or only stayed over for one night, whereas others were in hospital for over 5 days!
Thank you to anyone who answers this!
