Thyroid Update and other News

It’s been a while since my last update. I got busy at work and had a really bad sinus infection so sorry not sorry for not updating.

Instead of updating all at once, I’m going to spread them out over the next few days. Here’s my thyroid update:

Alright, last time I posted I was still waiting to get into my new Endo. I finally had my appointment with her on Monday. I really like her. She’s already 100 times better than my last one.
She kept asking me questions about what my last doctor was doing with me. I told I didn’t really know because he never talked to me or answered my questions. She said that I shouldn’t have been on Methimozole this long because it’s not good for the liver. My last Endo had had me on it for three years. Way too long (according to her).

She did a thyroid ultrasound because she thinks I might have nodules. She also did a lot of blood work. If she found nodules, I would most likely need surgery to remove the thyroid. She already said we’d talk about my options (surgery or radiation) during my next appointment which is this coming Wednesday (Dec 30th). I’m going to choose the surgery. My sister just had the surgery a couple of months ago and everything went smoothly. Though I have Graves’ worse than her and I’m a bit worried about the surgery. I’ve heard that if you have the surgery to remove your thyroid, the Graves’ just attacks other organs in your body. I’m going to ask my Endo about that during the next appointment and also do some research.

Well those are all the thyroid updates I have for now. I’ll have more after this Wednesday.

    I really hate being in that situation where you new doctor is questioning your other doctor and you’re there thinking ‘you guys are meant to know your shit!’. I hope this works out for you, I’ll be keeping an eye on your updates.
