What is life like post surgery?
I’m new to this group so maybe this has been done before but I’m curious how it came to be that you needed a thyroidectomy. I’m still in shock as up until a month ago I wasn’t even aware I had a problem. I got strep and a goiter that must have been growing steadily for about a year (unnoticed) blew up. I’ve never had any thyroid problems but it runs in my family so I’ve been tested regularly. Now I’m prepping for surgery in a few weeks via the rec of an ENT and endocrinologist and I just can’t believe it. I haven’t even had a biopsy of any of the nodules as there are so many and they are so large, but I have been told the ultrasounds don’t show anything suspicious. What is life like post surgery? I’m worried I won’t ever feel well again, all the talk of thyroid levels and calcium deficiencies has me so scared.
