Had a right sided thyroidectomy yesterday morning due to large goitre which needed to be removed for diagnostic tests.
Have been told to book blood tests in approximately 2 weeks time. Notice he's only asked for Tsh, T4, maybe T3 but not sure what the form said. No mention of having it done very early in the morning or fasting required. Notice a box next to the T4 to tick for antibodies but not ticked. I've had symptoms of hypothyroidism going on for 6 months now but told tsh levels normal at 4.9 and 3.6 after goitre came up. I did post results for first blood test with ranges used. Now Found out that my dad has Hashimotos, has been on levo for 9 years, should I ask that antibodies test is done based on this and also because the blood test is a private one as I had the operation done privately. Would dearly love to select antibodies box myself but know that wouldn't be allowed.
Also I have lost my voice again, he said I shouldn't do after the operation. Feeling pretty shattered but going home today.
Any advice please
