I am about to have thyroid surgery and have no idea how to explain this to my 4 1/2 year old son. I will have to stay overnight in the hospital and will come home with a 3 to 5 inch incision on my throat. Is there anyone out there who has gone through something similar? How did you explain it to your child?
