happyhomemaker25 Posted July 4, 2012 Share Posted July 4, 2012 Someone I know has some nodules on their thyroid. They did a biopsy and the results were inconclusive. The endocrinologist suggested meeting with a surgeon to discuss removing the thyroid. Has anyone here ever had their thyroid completely removed? They would leave the parathyroid (unless they could not which is a very slim chance), but remove the rest of the thyroid. This person would already be on thyroid medicine for life due to an underactive (is that hypo?) thyroid. Can you tell me how this will affect the person for the rest of their life? How was the surgery? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
