Has anyone ever sought out a total thyroidectomy surgery years after a subtotal tyroidtectomy for goiter and multinodular Hashimoto’s autoimmune thyroiditis? I had a subtotal thyroidectomy at age 19. I’m now 34. For the last 8-10 years my thyroid levels have been uncontrollable. Thyroid scans show that in the last two years the remainder of my thyroid has shrunk by 33%. My husband and I have been trying for a year and a half to conceived. We have used all our savings for fertility treatments. I am beyond exhausted and frustrated in the daily interference in my life. Any advice or input would be great. I am a professor and have done extensive research but it hasn’t really indicated why my current endo won’t do the follow up surgery. There is very low risk and the two concerns may be Laryngeal nerve damage (less than 1% risk) and parathyroid damage (less than .7%).
