I found a lump near my Thyroid gland, a biopsy found it was not cancerous but consultant all but recommended I have a partial Thyroidectomy op to remove the lump. It has been tried twice now both times the op was stopped due to high heart rate, I have AF, the first time I was taken to A&E from my pre opp appointment, the second I had been taken down to the theatre, but the anaesthetists couldn't get a vein, they worked on me for 29 mins and then the senior one after consulting with Thyroid surgeon told me we must stop due to your heart rate 147 as it's to dangerous to continue with operation
My question is what next, one of the anaesthetists said to me when he was cleaning me up if it was me I would not put myself through this again, I would just have the lump monitored periodically to make sure it has not turned cancerous. Can anyone tell me if his advice is a viable option. I have an appointment to see Thyroid consultant next month, and it would pre arm me if I heard others opinions about this.
