I had a partial thyroidectomy 5 weeks ago. Things seem to be healing fine except that my neck feels tight behind the incision. Not the incision itself, but it's as if the incision has gotten attached to tendons or something. When I swallow, there is a noticeable and not comfortable vertical pulling against the incision; if it continues I'm going to get a bunch of wrinkles forming above. I can't sing in church with my head all the way up and swallow, too.

I've searched these boards, saw several threads but nothing seems to address this. I haven't found anything thru searching google, either.

I'd like to hear from anyone who might have information or experience... is this normal? It doesn't seem as if it is, and I'd like a little confidence when I see my doctor next week for the 6 week check. I did call him 10 days after surgery (it's been like this all along) and wasn't able to talk with him directly; the desk girl relayed the message that "it will soften over time." This isn't an incision problem; it's what's going on behind it that bothers me.
