Ive not posted for a while but thought i would update you all. Im now 6 months post op after having a total thyroidectomy and i have to say im feeling pretty good. After my thyroid went overactive for the second time the carbimazole wasnt working properly so i opted for thyroidectomy as i felt so ill. as you can see i now have minimal scarring and am enjoying life once more climbing the mountains in North Wales. So for anyone thinking of having the op i for one recommend it. I did think long and hard about it though and didnt take the decision lightly. sorry for some reason the image is sideways and i cant turn it on here. But i hope you can see how good the scar is.
