Am finally home in my own comfy bed resting after my total thyroidectomy, yesterday and got discharged this afternoon just after 2 pm. All the staff on ward 31 at BDGH were brillant with me explaining every step of my op & after care. I have to go back tomorrow morning for another calcium profile and they have started me on 125 mircograms of levothyroxine is this the normal start dose before i have my bloods done in 2 weeks ?????
below is a pic of my neck 1 hour after surgery .
And i would just to say a big massive thank you to you all on here who have helped me get through the run up to my op xxxx
