Anyone know if a Partial thyroidectomy can cause mood swings and depression and anxiety?
Prior to the operation day I had my blood tests done to check thyroid function and they came back as " normal" meaning my thyroid was producing the correct levels of Thyroxin. I had experienced these bad symptoms before the tests were done so I was curious to know if there was a problem..
The reason for the thyroidectiomy was they found a 5cm lump on the right side and had to remove the whole right side to determine wether it was malignant or not.
fortunately is wasn't malignant, but instead of feeling better i have experienced extreme tiredness, some depression mixed with anxiety and OCD type thinking patterns concerning personal issues in my relationship.. This has never happened before.
My surgeon told me after the operation my thyroid will work just fine with only the left side present but I am feeling unusally erratic moods and anxiety. can anyone help??
