Re: Thyroidectomy recovery?

I had a total thyroidectomy so I can't say. I would not have been able to go back that soon. It's more of a major surgery than you realize. I will tell you the one thing I wish someone had told me - the first day you won't be able to swallow. Even ice chips. I panicked but they reassured me, then, that it would go away. And by the next day it was gone. Good luck!!
