Within a few days?: you should ask the surgeon about this, but it all depends on what surgery is being done on your thyroid - if it is a deep procedure, say a subtotal thyroid extort, it could take up to a week for full recovery, while simple biopsies take a day to do and you are back at work the next day. Ask your surgeon
