Hi my name is Rachel, I'm 43 with an over active thyroid. I was first diagnosed 3 years ago and was treated with Carbimazole for 18months which seemed to sort the situation temporarily as I relapsed in April this year.
I have seen an NHS endo who has recommended radioiodine treatment but have since seen a private consultant who recomends I have surgery! I don't have a goitre so thought surgery wasn't necessary.
As a new blogger I was hoping some of you may have some advise to help me clarify things in my head. I am edging towards the surgery option at the moment as I'm thinking "get it out and know where I'm at, rather than waiting for it to become under active". I realise its not as simple as that and I realise I'll be on medication for the rest of my life.
My other big worry is the tiredness, I've always been a tired person and am concerned this may get worse.
If anyone can help in anyway I would be really grateful for your input.
