My eyes are bulging due to hypothyroidism!!!! My doc said that if I want I can get surgery to remove the fat tissue building up in my eyes. Is this a good idea? Will my eyes stop bulging and go back to normal? what could go wrong?
I suggest doing some research on Graves' Disease. I have Graves' and was previously hyperthyroid, now hypo after radioactive iodine treatment. I have never heard of hypothyroidism causing the bulging of the eyes, but I know that is a big problem from Graves' Disease. You might get more information regarding treatments and outcomes from that.
I have a bulging eye problem too. But it's been a while since I had hyperthroidism, and I do actually feel bothered by that. Did you go to the cosmetic doctor and he suggest you to do surgery on eye or under eye(eye bag area)?
