I'm still weighing my options at this time and will be very interested in seeing what others share about Post-Op.

Hello Looking4aAnswer,

I will find out all the details about my surgery this Weds (Jan 26), so I will definitely share whatever information I have been given with you. I have never been on any types of medication for my thyroid. I was pushed off about it for quite a few years now and ended up developing a goiter. I was told even with medications, the goitre is not going to go away and since it is now causing troubles with my breathing, it has to go out. I was told by my ENT that from his personal experience, he finds it so much easier to have thyroid surgery on those who have not been on Synthroid.

Were you given a choice on having or not having surgery??
