Consultation after hemithyroidectomy


Hi guys - I am going to see the ENT consultant today after having a left hemi-thyroidectomy last Wednesday. Reason for the op was to identify and remove a large cyst. Prior to the op the consultant was certain he was removing a benign cyst only (and that I could have adopted a waitful watch approach). I have written my own questions but would really appreciate your advice about what I should definitely be asking him. He has already said that I should arrange a TFT blood test in 5 weeks. Many thanks.

Hi Louise - thank you for this - it doesn't matter now - I had the consultation and asked as many questions that I could think of. I had my bloods taken earlier this week to see how my remaining half of thyroid is coping! I will get the results at end of the week, so fingers crossed x
