So my graves has returned after pregnancy. 15 years ago at age 15ish I had 95% removed and never had a problem since. Now after pregnancy I am hyper with a large goitre. I have a ten month old baby and I have never been away from her at all so I feel RAI is not an option but having seen the surgeon I am devastated that I had no vocal damage the first time but may never talk to my daughter if this goes wrong. Is RAI really an option for people with young children as this would be less of a risk to me? And why such a big risk?! Is 50% cautious? I feel so depressed and no idea where to turn. Anyone had a second op? Thanks xx
