after 15 months of awful Graves' disease symptoms, my thyroid just won't respond to anything, supplements, medicine ...it's a goner
so my Endocrinologist says it's time to consider treatment surgically, and recommended me for a Near total thyroidectomy, ie , leaving the Parathyroid glands .
having met the Surgeon , I now hear from his secretary that I'm down for a TOTAL thyroidectomy, with no explanation .
i don't want more cut out than necessary.
any advice please??????
