Re: Thyroidectomy Coming Up Input Please

Hopefully you will have some response from people who have had the TT. It sounds like you have read something/heard something different than the 1% risks that I read about. When you get better info on these risks after your appts, could you share that info?The tracheotomy is something I had not even heard about before, and would of course cause alot of concern.Are you certain that each nodule is 3.5 cm , that would be over an inch and a half for each one? Are you saying that they grew an additional 1cm each, in just the past 12 months? Was your endo having u/s on a 6 mo basis or an annual basis? Again, I hope someone with the surgery will surface. I know that there have been some threads on TT issues before and you may want to search this board.
