Having seen my endocrinologist two months ago and due to see again in May, He has stated he very much doubts that i will go into remission as my goitre is large, i was very hyperthyroid with a FT4 83 (12-22) and high level of antibodies on diagnosis. He is now pushing for RAI or Surgery which i do not want either and to compound the problem further i have been hypothyroid TSH 31.7 for quite a while as i am taking Carbimazole 40mgs and Levothyroxine 100mcgs which has been increased from 50mcgs to 75mcgs and finally to 100mcgs. I have no faith with Levothyroxine as it does not seem to work for me, as i feel rotten! so very reluctant to have my thyroid destroyed. i asked if i do go hyperthyroid again about staying on Carbimazole on a low maintenance dose and my endocrinologist is not happy to do this. Is there a reason why you can't stay on Carbimazole on a long term basis? Thank you for your help
