... thyroidectomy after few days, will i be able to continue taking care of my child directly post surgery or do i need help?
A major concern post op is bleeding. I would avoid bending down so your options maybe quite limited. I would wait at least 2 weeks before beginning anything that requires you to bend down or bear down. In the end the best person to answer this for you is your surgeon. But I would plan to be unable to for about 1.5-2 weeks minimum.
There are some large vessels there that are located during the thyroidectomy that come off the carotids. So I wouldn't chance it.
