Hi guys! Just wanted to give you all an update. After 9 months of seeing 2 GPs, 1 ENT specialist, 2 endocrinologists, I finally saw the surgeon last week. 9 months of pain (possibly due to recurrent thyroiditis). Had a biopsy on my nodules and it came back inconclusive and MRI scan showed that my trachea is deviating (which could be causing the pain too). I already had a lobectomy 7 years ago because of a goitre and nodules, but I had no pain then. I have been taking 25mg Thyroxine (I know a tiny dose) for about 5 months now and it has made a massive difference to my tiredness. So, I am saying goodbye to the remaining lobe this week and my body will have to relearn how to live without my thyroid. My surgery is being done by the same vascular surgeon who did my previous lobectomy, so I have faith in him. Thank you for all the advice, help and support you continue to give to each other within this community. It's very helpful and it's taught me a lot.
