thyroid disorders
i had a partial thyroidectomy a few years back, and since have developed choking problems, esp when eating sweet food, i also find that i have to stick to eating soft foods to reduce the risk of choking. could this be related to the operation? i was diagnosed as having hashimotos, and have been on eltroxin since.

Kiara, t might be due to scar tissue pressing on something somewhere, the thyroid enlarging again or even due to something that was done wrong during the operation. The best would be to see a surgeon and have it sorted out. Good luck.
