I'm a long way from even wanting to sip a drink but I was just curious for those of you who have had a total thyroidectomy if you ever have a drink or two?
I use to sip an ocassional glass of red wine and I was wondering if I will still be able to that in the future now my thyroid is gone?
Hello, I had a total thyroidectomy in March of 2005 and occaisionally have a few drinks. The only thing is that now it affects me a bit more.....I used to be able to have a couple glasses of red wine with little or no affect before bed and now 1/2 a glass is just fine so I guess it affected my tolerence. Good luck.
