Help please? this is my second bout of hyperthyroidism, Graves, it went into remission last time after taking carbimazole for 18 months, about 8 years ago. I have had my 1st appointment with a new endo in a new hospital and I'm now on 40mg x 3 propanolol and 30mg carbimazole. However endo said next time I see him he wants me to decide on either surgery or RAI. I'm not sure I want either of those as I don't then want a lifetime of being hypo. Any advice much appreciated on either of these procedures or long term effects of stating on carb. Hate all these symptoms though!
