I've been recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. They suspect Grave's, but we are waiting on tests. My doctor told me I have a 40% chance of going into remission. If I don't, we can either take meds for years or do the ablation. I looked at that and I really do not like the idea of ablation, but I don't want to have hyperthyroidism forever. Could I get a thyroidectomy instead or would they refuse? I plan on bringing it up only if I don't go into remission, but I am curious if anyone has any experience or knows if I get a say on that. I feel much more comfortable with the surgery than the ablation because I read you need to be careful about hugging, kissing, wash clothes separately, etc. That just seems a little scary and I take care of my baby all day, so close contact is unavoidable.
