I am having a right side thyroidectomy on Monday due to hypothyroidism symptoms and now more recently a large goitre which they dont think is cancer but cant be sure. The Endo says my tsh levels are normal at 4.9 before the goitre and 3.6 after. T4 9.1 and 9.6 respectively. Says they will check my thyroid function 2 weeks after the operation. What I wonder is, will they just check my tsh and T4 or wouldthey do all the thyroid testing T4 T3 antibodies etc as if I need medication if my thyroid can't cope I don't want to to have to wait until my levels are so out of whack that I feel even worse than I do now . I am having the operation done privately as I could not get a quick enough consultant appointment on the nhs. However I did not like the attitude of the consultant as he seemed to think none of my symptoms were anything to do with hypothyroidism or a goitre appearing suddenly.
Any advice please, thanks Lori
