Hi, I'm 49 and had a hemi thyroidectomy a few years back due to a suspicious nodule, which thankfully turned out to be benign. I have suffered for years with hypothyroid symptoms but my bloods according to the doctor are within the OK limits. I also very quickly became menopausal after my operation and am now pretty much through it. I have just had a thyroid blood test and get my results on Tuesday, I wasn't told and didn't realise that I should have had an annual blood test after my operation!! I'm almost hoping it is low so that I have an answer for why I feel so rubbish and hopefully they can start to treat it.
