After 4 months of living a half life I am due to have my thyroid removed on the 15th Jan.
I have been hyper and extensive testing has shown this to be a large toxic tumour on my thyroid. I have not choice but complete removal and I do believe the doctors, they have spared no time or expense in every testing possible (I do live in France and this makes a huge difference to urgency and facilities available).
I am so scared about all the stories I hear about the problems people have after the removal of a thyroid and how they never actually get their lives back and have an endless battle with levels of drugs and tiredness (again) and weight gain. Does anyone have any re-assuring stories of how they were after surgery.
I am a very busy woman that feels like she has been overtaken by an exhausted foggy headed useless being and it is so depressing.
