Re: Hashimotos!!

I have gone through it. A nodule, only mine was inconclusive that it was benign. Yours sounds like it is. Tested positive for Hashimoto's, but with Normal TSH & FT4. I chose to watch the nodule until it started growing too much and then only had a Partial Thyroidectomy. It was benign and now I'm having to start worrying about thyroid function because my TSH has risen. I was hoping the half of my thyroid left behind would do the work of both, with is quite possible. But with Hashi's, it seems like it might be too much to ask for it to do.

It's a very personal choice. I sing and was scared of surgery so that was my choice. If you're not scared of that, you might choose differently. There is no right or wrong in this case.

Hope that helps a little at least. Good luck!!!
