My question is is on the treatments for hyperthyroidism. Today I went with my girlfriend to see the doc, and they told her that she had the option for taking the radioactive iodine pill or surgery. She is worried by taking the pill she gets hypothyroidism and then taking meds for the rest of her life. Also the fear of weight gain and loss of hair. But I've done research and both routes it seems she'll become hypo either way. Is this true and what are the side of Levothyroxine? I want to get as much correct information as possible to help her with her choice and hopefully put her mind at ease.
