Post Weight control after total Thyroidectomy

I had my thyroid removed (plus 3 tumors) on friday. I have always been overweight but my thyroid has always functioned normally. I have not started synthroid still waiting for the path report.

what can i expect to happen with my weight?

I don't know but I am in the same boat as you. I have always been overweight but could not blame it on my thyroid!! All tests came back normal. I am having partial done Thursday and am very apprehensive. I don't know if I will have to take meds afterward we have to wait on bloodwork to determine this. Please tell me about your surgery so I know what to expect. Don't leave anything out I really need to be informed, I think this will ease my fears. Thanks, KK
