Think I'm ready to go under the knife...

Hi everyone, well I have a small nodule, been there now about a yr or so. Have gone through FNA's and have the "suspicious" cells, Follicular and Hurthel, but they "say" common in Hashimoto's people. I agree, but still have swollen glands and the last ultrasound shows "blood flow" to the nodule, ahh, that doesn't sound right? Well, my labs today are very very hyper and over the limits, but I feel good? Question: because I'm overmedicated could that help keep the nodule from growing? My last ENT didn't want me on this high of a dose, said it wouldn't give him enough to know what the nodule was really up to? I'm seeing a surgeon in a few wks and my pcp agrees this waiting, worrying about dosing is getting crazy.
Also, I've had a ton of x-rays in my life, due to cervical back issues and surgeries, adrenal issues, esophogus etc that darn thyroid has been zapped way too much.
Would you agree, why keep waiting?
