hi, thanks for reading this

after years of awful Graves' disease which was unresponsive to any meds or supplements , I gave in and had my thyroid out. I instantly felt so much better, apart from adjusting to a slower system, bouts of nausea and now...headaches.

my neck feels caught in a vice, the pain is awful....I'm worried the surgery , with my neck held in place, has caused some kind of post op tension.

any thoughts on this? 

Are the headaches normal post op X 4 months?  What should I expect? No one in the specialist area has even examined me since the surgery! I saw a GP to get my stitches out!!!

feel quite abandoned!
