I had left side of thyroid removed in October . The lump was benign so was told no further treatment as bloods are normal . Problem is I feel anything but normal . Bloods have now been taken to check vit d ,calcium and full blood count I already have low b12 and receive 3monthly injection . I understand go is just checking if papillary glands are working properly . Does anyone have experience of this ,will this mean more surgery or just drugs . My symptoms are fatigue , muscle pain and weakness ,brain fog to name a few . Really hope bloods show something as I am sick of being told everything is normal been like this for more than 18months now . I would appreciate any advice any of you could give
Papillary glands : I had left side of thyroid... - Thyroid UK
Gwenb, there are no papillary glands. I think you mean it was suspected that there was papillary cancer in the left side of your thyroid gland which turned out to be benign.
The right side of your thyroid gland is expected to produce the thyroid hormone required but doesn't always step up to the mark. Ask your GP receptionist or practice manager for a copy of your recent thyroid results and ranges (figures in brackets after results) and post them in a new question for advice.
The symptoms you describe could be due to low thyroid hormone which is treated with Levothyroxine. They may also be caused by low/deficient vitamin D, ferritin, B12 and folate so ask your GP to do blood tests and post the results and ranges for advice.
