I am having a thyroid lobectomy in a couple of weeks and I have been told that I will need to be on thyroid medication for the rest of my life following surgery. My question is what are the pros and cons of the different medications? From reading the postings on this board I understand that there are synthetic and natural thyroid hormone replacements, what is the difference? Does it usually take a long time to get the dosage regulated after surgery? Thanks for any help you can give me.
