A nodule has been discovered on my thyroid and I have been told there is a possibility of removal. I am due for an Ultrasound Neck Aspiration very soon but I would like to know from patients who are without a thyroid how life is for them. I have been suffering for a long time with thyroid problems so life has been pretty miserable and it was only after changing GP practice that anything has been done. My readings have always fluctuated between borderline high or low and former GP said no worries. New GP really listened to me and referred me to ENT because of pain in my throat and ear. After MRI scan nodule was discovered and I have been classed as urgent. I am new here.
