Melissa,
The good news is, in a year or so from now, you'll have forgotten a lot about this surgery as well!

My surgery was a year and a half ago. I don't remember too much, but I remember my neck feeling numb and sometimes tight for quite a while---and I think that happens in the area you have any surgery done.

I did have some minor swallowing issues early on, and I found liquids and course foods both a bit hard to get down---but I recommend ice cream---it was soothing, and the perfect consistency!

Most of the things you find uncomfortable now, will probably get better within the next month or two. In terms of swelling, although it's normal, you should definitely call your surgeon about it. I had a lump under the scar, and it felt burning hot and red to the touch, and my surgeon said it was a bit infected.

You sound like everything is normal and you sound like you are doing well. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
