Recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. I have been having some major bouts with depression lately. Was on Zololf for a few years (before I was diagnosed ) but stopped taking them. My doc won't prescribe any meds only suggests removal (with nodules smaller than 1/4 cm). I feel trapped and nowhere to run. What can I do? No insurance and can't get help anywhere else.
I've only had two labs done and didn't understand how it came to surgery. I'm not in the position to get a second opinion yet but hopefully soon.I really don't trust my Endo doc but was assigned to her through the VA.
