Hi all I’m new here,
I had a partial thyroidectomy (R half) in June 2014. Had a really fast growing cyst, it grew over 4cms in six months and after several biopsies came back inconclusive/suspicious they decide to operate. Post op I needed no treatment or meds as apparently the remaining half is functioning ok. Luckily I had a great GP at the time who referred me quickly.
Fast forward to this earlier in the year, I’ve felt like there’s something going on again, with similar symptoms to before. Then a couple of weeks ago I noticed a swelling on the left side above my scar and even my mum noticed it this weekend.
I’m going to attempt to book a doctor’s appointment this week (I’ve since moved gps though and my new one is anything but sympathetic), so debating whether to also pay for private tests?!
Wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience post surgery? I’m aware it could be a number of things, but it’s still hard not to freak out over it!
