so it’s been a year now. A year of Hyper thyroid and Graves’ disease. Or hyper thyroid and Graves’ disease. Or year of bloodwork and doctors. Are year of losing 12 pounds than gaining it all back. A YEAR ON methamazole And now I am down on a maintenance dose of 2.5 mg ev and now I am down on a maintenance dose of 2.5 mg every day. Everything almost stabilized but still dealing with the Graves’ disease ery day. Everything on most stabilized but still dealing with the GRAVES disease that will always have to be kept in check with this drug . I could use a little direction from the group, as I just met a Doctor Who did my thyroid biopsy. Two needles in the neck not very fun. This I could use a little direction from the group, as I just met a Doctor Who did my thyroid biopsy. Two needles in the neck not very fun. I really love this doctor and her staff, she was very professional and explain things to me like no doctor has before. We discussed for the first time the removal of the thyroid
due to the three nodules the Graves’ disease and the hyperthyroid she and I both think it is the best bet for surgery . she was pretty optimistic that this would keep the Graves’ disease at bay . I have not gotten the results of biopsy to see if it is cancerous, but either way to me it sounds like the surgery is the way I’m leaning toward. I know my body and I have not been the same since the Graves’ disease. I know I will have to take a medication called Synthroid afterwards . I am 56 years old not afraid of surgery if it’s the right way to go… Thoughts?
