can I have help with this, ive been offered to have my thyroid nodule and half thyroid removed, I wasn't sure as ive heard a lot of bad stories about this but im not sure if im defeated the inevitable.
I have a nodule which is causing swallowing problems and sometimes feels as if im being strangled, its resting on my wind pipe also, I have many symptoms of hypo but my thyroid lab work has always came back in range but proof that my tsh is rising every month.
im scared of operations and hate getting put to sleep and always worried that something will go wrong and I wont wake up and leave my 4 children motherless.
im basically looking for someone to give me answers and see what someone would do in my shoes, also looking for people who has had the op to tell me if its wise or should I try getting thyroxine to see if that will shrink my nodule?
I have heard from people who said it was the worse thing they have done and then others saying they are glad, one woman wishes she had it done now because hers finally grew to much that they couldn't operate!
im so in limbo I don't know what to do for the best
I would be so happy to get some input.....
many thanks nichola x
