Hi, am after some advice. I had my thyroid removed 2 weeks ago which went fine but since then I have had terrible kidney pain. A week after surgery I had an awful stabbing pain in my right kidney which hospitalised me. Part of my kidney died (refarction) and they are not sure why. Though they are sure it is nothing to do with the Thyroidectomy. Can this be right? Anyone had kidney issues? Can Thyroxine have an impact? Any advice appreciated.
