Glad that you are home safe and sound. Put your feet up, put the TV on, and ring the bell for your husband for anything that you. need.
I have been thinking of you! I am glad you are home and that things went well. Your throat will feel odd for a bit, but it does go away. I had my surgery a year and a half ago and the scar actually looks pretty good now. Be prepared to be very tired once your body realizes that you don't have a thyroid to help stabalize your metabolism. I slept up to 3 hours a day for awhile.
Will you have the radioactive iodine pill? My husband called it the matrix pill. It isn't too bad, but again, be prepared to feel out of sorts.
But, once you get past that and on your thyroid meds, you should feel great!
