I had my mucocele removed surgically a week tomorrow. Everything was fine until this morning when I noticed a little bump just under my scar and this evening I have a quite a big blister where my scar is..it is really clear and looks like it will pop..I don't think/ hope it is not the mucocele coming back. 
Has anyone experienced something similar?

Just back from Hospital...and it looks like I have a new mucocele...going back in 2 weeks to check . If it is a new mucocele they will try to freeze it this time... Depressing!.. My stitches are still in..

Just had it frozen... Very swollen and lots of blisters... Doc said it could be up to 4 weeks before I can see any results.. Fingers crossed!

I have had four surgeries. Three different ENTs. One was the head of the otolaryngology department at Columbia University Medical Center. Three in office procedures, one under general anesthesia with a CO2 laser. They have all resulted the with the recurrence of the mucocele right where the scar was left. At this point I have given up all hope of it ever being resolved. I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but if it does end up returning you aren't the only one. :-)
