So after over 18 months of block and replace I came off my meds but after 3 months I am now relapsing. I am suffering terrible heart flutters/palpitations as well as other symptoms...it's all coming flooding back to me how I felt before I was diagnosed. I saw my Endo 2 weeks ago and they were very much it's either radioactive iodine or surgery and that's it!
I am 32 years old, getting married within the next year with the hope of starting a family next year, hopefully. I mentioned this to my Endo and they were very adamant that we have time to get this done so that I am sorted...as if it was that easy! I have read countless forums and articles and I am 100% against the radioactive iodine, I have read too many negative responses about it.
I feel like I am stuck between a rock and a hard place....the anti-thyroid drugs put nearly 3 stone on me, I felt bloated constantly and I know surgery will mean being underactive for the rest of my life.
I have no idea what to do but I know when I go back to the Endo in April they'll be pushing for an answer...has anyone else been in this situation? Any help would be greatly appreciated! x
