I had a lump the size of a golf ball attached to my thyroid (my surgery was actually the beginning of May, so it's been a little more than a year). One of my biggest fears about the surgery was the scar it would leave (shallow, I know...).
And so, after one year and use of Mederma every now and then, you can hardly see the scar at all. At least not in the picture. I still catch people staring at my neck sometimes. When I went to the dentist in April he asked me if I'd had a tracheotomy...what can you do?
