ill be having a thyroidectomy here shortly and i was wondering if anyone had ever had this surgeyr done before. what can i exspect? before and after? does it hurt? how long before you felt better? how longer afterwards untill you could return to normal activities? etc. etc.
I had my Thyroid and ParaThyroid removed in July 2001 due to benign tumors 12 in all. I was given the choice of removing the tumors and have my Thyroid look like Swiss cheese or removing all. I opted for all. In doing so I don't have to have surgery every 5 years to remove more tumors that would with all likelihood grow back. I was in the hospital 3 days until they got my calcium under control then home on the 4th day. Took about a week after that to rest and start getting back to normal life. I am on medication now and will be for the rest of my life. Every year blood tests and tweaking of medicine to make sure it is not too high or too low. I have had no problems. Good Luck.
