Hi alahpudan,
Thank you for your question and for joining EmpowHER. It is normal to feel pain in your throat right after surgery, but if the pain you are experiencing now is persistent or excessive, you may want to get in to see a doctor to rule out a problem.
For more information, please check out the following information about thyroidectomy. It includes post-operative care, what to expect, and when to call the doctor: Thyroidectomy Information
Good luck and let us know if you have more questions after reviewing the information provided.
