It's about 3 1/2 weeks past my surgery and my neck around the incision is still numb (and itchy
!) One thing I did notice for the
first 2 weeks is a mediciny taste in
my throat - like iodine. It was nasty and interfered with my taste a bit too.
Martha - I also felt the chocking the first 2 weeks too, it will go away. Just have water close by to help clear your throat.
There is no other way to describe it - but recovery from this surgery sucks!
