DID YOU KNOW?
Post-op care of Thyroidectomy:
Wound Care: Your wound will be covered with tape, which should be left in place for about 2 weeks. The tape will be removed at your first postoperative visit. You may notice some dried blood under the tape but that is of no concern. You can wash and shower with the tape in place and even get it wet. Once removed or fallen off, the tape should be replaced and you will then need to change it every 2 or 3 days for the next 2 to 3 months in order to get the best possible cosmetic result. The preferred tape is narrow, flesh coloured Micropore which can be obtained from your chemist.
Activities: You should generally restrict vigorous
activities for 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. Activities which involve turning the head suddenly, such as driving in heavy traffic, should be avoided for 5-7 days post surgery, although local driving is acceptable. Commonsense is the best way to avoid
straining your neck.
Local symptoms: A variety of local symptoms
are common for several weeks after surgery including tightness, choking or having to force down food. Headaches and tiredness are also common as is weakness of the voice with prolonged use. Occasionally a symptom may last for months. Swelling of the neck around the wound is also
common and may benefit from daily massage
with Vitamin E cream. Numbness of the skin above the wound may be present and may last for many months.
Late Complications: The only delayed complication
of concern is wound infection. This may have occurred if the wound becomes very red, hot and more swollen. If that occurs you must seek attention from your local doctor straight away who will arrange for you to have antibiotics.
Follow-up: Generally your follow-up will consist of:
A visit at 2 - 4 weeks after surgery to review &
discuss results. You will need to ring the office if
an appointment has not yet been made. There is
no charge for this visit if you were a private patient.
A final surgical follow-up consult at 3 months.
There is a charge for this visit, partly claimable from Medicare.
Calcium Supplements: A temporary drop in calcium
levels is very common. The calcium level is checked in hospital and if it is abnormal, you will be sent home on just calcium supplements. If the calcium level is low, you may also be sent home on vitamin D tablets in addition. You will need to see your local doctor every week after discharge to have a blood test and to have the calcium levels checked. If, at each visit, the calcium level in the blood is normal, then the dose needs to be reduced according to the protocol at right.
