I have been seen by the specialist today and diagnozed with graves disease. IM 44 and he doesnt want me to stay on meds long term. I was only started on the meds on the 23rd Sept he is recommending radioactive iodine or surgery but pushing more to radioactive and im not sure about this. Why cant i stay on the meds for the next 12 months and see what happens? he says its a 50 50 chance that it will return and he doesnt like to keep patients at my age on meds if i was 17 then yes.
I go back in jan/feb and need to decide any suggestions out there?
