Hi all, I’m new to this site but have been reading people’s experiences for the last 2 years. I had a goitre appear just under 2 years ago, my bloods are confirming no issues with my thyroid functioning so not been medicated and have just been seen every so often by a consultant who ha been taking notes of my symptoms, aspirating fluid from my lump which started as one lump but is now 4 lumps in a cyst. Been advised after every aspiration the samples were thy1 and was told no concerns for cancer. Went to see consultant 2 weeks ago after another aspiration 6 weeks ago and again neck is swollen and lump had grown again so I finally sighed my consent for a hemithyroidectomy which is happening this week. I would be grateful for any info that may help me- how long did people have off work? What was the recovery like? Any personal experiences would be great.
Thanks for your help x
