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?
