I was diagnosed Graves disease in May 2016. I started with 20 mg tiamazol and after 3 months all my levels have been in range. All my symptoms have dissapear except for a 3 mm eyelid retraction on my left eye that hasn't change in the last 9 months, since I was diagnosted. It hasn´t improved or worsened and I dont feel any pain or dryness. Currently Im on 5 mg tiamazol (the dose was decreased periodically) and probably my endo will tell me to stop the medication next month if my levels are still in range. Now, my biggest concern is wether or not I should have an eyelid surgery. I consulted two different specialist that had different opinions. The first one suggested to keep waiting and see if my levels keep in range after stopping taking tiamazol. The second one suggested to have the surgery since my eyelid retraction has been stable and in the same condition. Is there any hope that my eyelid retraction can recover or improve without surgery? Or do you think it´ s time to consider having one?
