Hi everyone, I would like to ask your opinion please.
I have had hypothyroidism for many years but now I need your views on my fathers situation.....he is 95 yrs old and in a pretty frail state, just had a month in hospital after a bad fall. They have found by accident that he is HYPERthyroid and are suggesting surgery.
My concerns obviously are that at 95 and frail he would struggle to recover from surgery . I will speak with the consultant when we get an appointment but does anyone have any view or experience of surgery /thyroidectomy at an advanced age please.
I thought they would try treatment with meds first.
Thank you for reading.
