How long do you have a sore neck after surgery? Mine is still sore after 3 weeks.

Your neck maybe sore for awhile. Mine was sore for a month or so after the surgery. It also got really itchy. I know that's the healing process. You just want to make sure the wound continues to heal and does not look infected. If at anytime it gets worse, does not look like it is healing correctly, redness, or tenderness you should see your doctor. Infections in a neck wound can be serious. You doctor will know what to do if that happens.

I started out with a L hemi and then I had to do a right completion surgery (papillary carcinoma.) My neck was sore for about 2 weeks. Edward- my scar itched too. It got annoying!

I'm curious how mederma worked for sito456. I only used vitamin E.
