Hi, I am new to the forum and I was hoping that somebody might be able to offer some advice. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism at 17 years old. I am now 20 years old with the highest levels most consultants, doctors, etc. haven ever seen. My Hospital hasn't seen a level so high and I feel like I am dying. I now have Thyroid Heart Disease and a very large Goitre. I also have a baby that I am being helped with cause I can not carry her anymore with how weak I am. I am being pushed for surgery to have all of my thyroid removed and I think it is wrong. I spent over a grand going to Holland to get oil but it seems that it will take to long that way and it is very expensive and in the mean time I am deteriorating and so now I am guessing that a Thyroidectomy is my only option. I have a very short amount of time left to sort this out and I would really appreciate if anyone knows of any alternatives that work. I do not believe in having this operation. Having an organ removed and put on synthetic hormones for the rest of my life? I would rather not.
I would be grateful for any information anyone can provide.
