Question How many of you shrunk nodules with med alone?

Hi All,

Can you tell me how many of you were able to shrink nodules with meds alone and how long did it take? (Mine is 7 x 8 x 18 mm)...

Thanks!

i'm not sure if this is the same situation you're in, but after being diagnosed with hashimoto's thyroiditis with nodules i started taking levothyroxine and the nodules reduced in size over the course of 2 or 3 years and have stayed small since then.

i'm not sure what else i would have done other than take meds? surgery? vitamins?

Hey all,
I have Hashi's and nodules (largest measuring 1.4 centimeters across). Dr started me on Synthroid even though my labs are still in limits. I do have symptoms of hypo. He said that by starting now I will probably avoid surgery to remove them later since the meds will shrink the enlarged thyroid and the nodules. I can't wait! I hate the feeling of them in my neck. Not really pain, but VERY IRRITATING! happy
