                    2. How long will I be in the hospital for the surgery?

                      You have a lot of good questions for your surgeon to answer.   I would add asking about the surgeon's experience with thyroidectomies.  Does the surgeon do them all the time or every now and then?  You'll want to have a surgeon with a lot of experience removing thyroids for thyroid cancer, especially a surgeon who knows how delicate the parathyroids can be.  You may want to ask about post-surgi...
