As some of you already know my husband has Graves’ disease and after few weeks of 40g of Carbimazole he developed neutropenia. He will now start PTU once his levels go up, however his endo is worried that this will cause neutropenia too and suggested the thyroid surgery. We are a bit shocked and feel that it is a drastic solution. We obviously need to wait and see how he tolerates PTU however we need to plan the next steps. If anyone has been in a similar situation or has any suggestions for this situation, I would be most grateful to hear it.
