RAI or Surgery to treat hyperthyroidism?
Hello, could someone please share your experiences in dealing with hyperthyroidism and what treatment you chose?  Since mid 2008 I was treated with PTU twice for periods of about one year, but unfortunately had short remissions.  I am going to be 35 next month and want to have a family.  Would you say doing RAI could be a good choice (meaning I probably have to wait one year before trying to get pregnant) or do the surgery?  I am scared of having the surgery because of the risk of damage to my vocal cords.  Can that really happen nowadays?  If you could do it all over again what would you choose???  Is it easier to get pregnant with RAI or sugery? Or should i just continue on antithyroid drugs.  Many thanks! :-)
