Why after 4 years post thyroidectomy have you begun to experience consistent sore throats just around the area of removal It is not allergy related and lasts for months at a time?

Do you mean swollen and tight? I am 2 years post thyroidectomy and have been told by an endocrinologist that PT's have a heightened sensitivity in the thyroid area which during times of stress gives us this feeling.
