After many years of having a droopy left eye I finally decided to go to the doctors. Doctor said I was vain but he would refer me to hospital. To cut a long story short on Friday I met the surgeon who was going to lift my left eyelid via an operation. Upon meeting me he said I have thyroid eye disease which has gone untreated in the past. Apparently the eye i thought was droopy was infact normal.. it is the right eye that has bulged so much that its abnormal. He's going to operate and remove the scar tissue and drop the eyelid so both eyes are symmetrical. He said my blood results are ok now so don't require treatment and he is unsure how ive gone through life without paying a visit to my GP as my thyroid abmomality would have lasted at least 2 yrs.
Does this mean I still have thyroid eye disease? If not can it return? Is it hereditary? Should I have regular blood tests taken? Any advise would be grateful please
