I was recently diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism in early July. Before that, since around March, I noticed some changes in my eyes that has progressively gotten worse. My endocrinologist has prescribed me with methamizol which has helped my hyperthyroid symptoms and has brought my hormone levels back to normal. She recommends that I get the RAI treatment to cure my hyperthyroidism but after doing some research it seems like those with TED has gotten worse after the RAI. I reached out to my ophthalmologist and they also said that from being in teh clinic, they noticed that there is a trend in eyes getting worse for TED patients who gets RAI treatment and would recommend an alternative treatment. I've gotten a second opinion from another endocrinologist and he agrees, and recommends I do surgery to remove the thyroid instead. I do not want to get surgery but I definitely don't want my eyes to get worse. I feel like in this case surgery is the best way to go but was wondering if anyone else on here has gone through the same thing and would like to provide their experience or advice?
Thanks in advance!
