I am looking for some advice please, I am scheduled to have a partial thyroidectomy to remove half of my thyroid and would love to hear some experiences (positive or negative) from those who have already been through this...
A brief bit of history - I have a son who will be 3 in September. A year ago we decided to try for a second child but I didn't seem to ovulating. Around the same time I noticed a lump in my throat.
A years' worth of tests have revealed that I have a toxic nodule on my thyroid which is producing excess thyroxine. I have decided not to take carbimozole as I actually don't feel too bad (just shaky sometimes, a bit of insomnia etc.) I have been advised to have half of my thyroid removed as this seems to be my best chance of a cure, but I'd love to hear some of your experiences if anyone has had this surgery.
