Ora, I'm sure that you will be feeling 100% better after your surgery. I have had two thyroidectomy's! One after my second baby for 2 nodules. The only removed one lobe so I wasn't put on any medication. Then almost 20 years later I began having symptoms again. Neither the endocrinologist or the surgeon would even think about surgery. Two years later I had what's called Hashimoto's thyroiditis which was painful. I then had surgery to remove the remaining half of the gland and two parathyroids. I felt wonderful again! I will take Synthroid for the rest of my life but that is just fine! Best luck and prayers. NanaR
