Recently diagnosed with recurrent Graves Disease (3rd episode in 10 years) latest results are TSH <0.02 mu/l, free T4 51.5 pmol/l and free T3 20.0 pmol/l. Endo has started me off on 40mg Carbimazole daily with view to following block & replace regime (followed first time followed by 9 years trouble free), last time 18 months on 20mg Carbimazole only and have just relapsed after 4 months. Endo is talking about surgery if any further relapses. Would like anyone's point of view about surgery versus long term management with anti thyroid drugs?
Confused and fed up!!!!
