thyroidectomy

I have been reading a lot of the posts on here, and can't find my question.
I had 6 nodules, 6 years ago, and had a total thyroidectomy. I go once a year now for blood work and have it checked. This year I am due for a new scan, and I am a little afraid of going, I have been having trouble swollowing again, and I seem to feel a large nodule in my neck.

Has anyone that has had their thyroid removed, had trouble with more nodules growing? I know the first time, they were encapsulated so I didn't have to have radiation or anything, but doubt I would be so lucky this time.

Anyway, has anyone had more nodules grow after having their thyroid removed?

Thanks

Re: thyroidectomy

Sorry I can't help. Did they take absolutely all of your thyroid out? Mine I have about 3% left. But I didn't have nodules.

Hopefully someone can help

Re: thyroidectomy

TY April, yes they took all of my thyroid out, in fact he said he bruised the para thyroid getting it all. Had to stay in hospital a couple extra days to make sure the para's were going to keep working. Which they did.
But of course I didn't even know at the time I had para thyroid glands. lol
Thanks again

Re: thyroidectomy

Hello I am new to the Boards I came here looking for some help and to read other posts in hopes I am not alone and came across your post. I had 60% removed it will be a year 2/3. And I did have a Nodule grow back the Dr. told me that it was alright, But please dont go by that advice as I am not happy at the moment w/ either of the 2 Dr's I have seen. But I wanted to let you know that it did happen to me..
