Re: Thyroid problems

Even the most thorough thyroidectomy usually leaves bits of thyroid tissue behind. These bits can regrow and begin producing thyroid hormone again.

Are you having to constantly reduce your thyroid med dose? Having symptoms of hyperthyroidism? Unless your surgery was for thyroid cancer, it might be possible to manage any symptoms by adjusting your hormone dose.
