Hi, I'm new to this group, and I would like some info if at all possible please. Following an ultrasound scan, 4 nodules have been found on my thyroid. Bloods were taken and all appeared ok, and also biopsies were taken and the results came back inconclusive, following an appt with my GP (who has discussed this with an endocrinologist, but I have not had an appt with them) my GP has prescribed Levothyrox 50mg to be taken for 6 wks then a blood test will be done to see/adjust levels of medication, then I'm to continue to January 2017 when I will have another ultrasound scan to see if the nodules have stayed the same or increased in size. If they have increased then I will have to have an op to remove my thyroid. I;m not sure what to make of all this. I'm not a fan of taking tablets, and some of the side effects worry me, namely bone thinning, gastro problems and of course weight gain. Has anyone else been advised similar to me? I am a bit stressed by all of this and as of yet, I haven't started taking the medication, please help!!
