    No I was ok and felt fine till about 2 months later then went seriously under active so be prepared for being inactive and get on thyroxine as soon as. Tell a lie I did have a sore neck but my goitre really shrunk. Unfortunately I shouldn't have had it done as I have graves eye disease and think this made it worse
