If anyone was "lucky" enough to have this op please enlighten me and tell me if you still have numbness in your neck and chest. I had a modifies bilateral neck disseciton along with a total thyroidectomy (fun huh!) in april 07, and to this day I have almost no feeling in my neck or chest, and very limited feeling in the left shoulder due to them having to sever a muscle. I just want to know since nerve damage does not generally improve if this will too be permanant sice a majority of it is nerve damage. Thanks for anyone who can relate to this.
