I had whole thyroid removed on 24/6 I had penicillin because the wound was everso swollen etc. I still have a hoarse voice and chesty cough and yesterday I had temperature of 37.5 .... I told her that I have a temperature and she said ' thats not a temperature' and checked it ..again it was 37.5 ..I said THAT is a temperature as my normal temp is 36.5 ... she still insisted that 37.5 is not a temperature ..I am sorry but IT IS for goodness sake. Then I asked about iron tablets she said ' If you have your thyroid removed that is not a reason to have iron supplements as you body is exactly same as before when it comes to iron ' OH COME ON !!!! I Think that was the last time i went to see her.
