Hi I thought today I would give you my update as it is now a year today since my thyroidectomy.
I had a couple of bad years prior my op, severe hashimotos goitre and went through radio active iodine treatment.
My hashimotis was so severe that in the end I couldn't function at all, my body was giving up, terrible pains, there were days ( often ) that I would cry just trying to get out of bed, I felt like my body was giving up and so was I, all the treatment I had didn't work and my blood tests were off the scale.
I was offered the operation because it got so bad and it wasn't an easy decision to make but my thought process was ... stay the same, get worse or actually I could get better!
I needed my life back so I went for it well what a difference a year makes, I am totally back to normal, I actually felt different straight after the op, the surgeon said it was a mess in there and everything was stuck together and to everything around it ! My life has changed around, I feel healthy I feel alive and it was the best decision I've ever made, you can't even see my scar now as well.
The reason I wanted to update you is because at the time I was desperate to find someone who had gone through what I had and if I can help one person by writing this then that's great.
If anyone wants anymore info then please message me xx
