I am having my Thyroid Removed (a growth is causing trouble swallowing) Will my energy level improve any after removal? I have gained approx 40lbs in the last 8 months or so, but all of my labs look normal.
Typically energy and weight related to thyroid are based on thyroid function -- so if after surgery the thyroid medication is properly dosed you should do fine. If the growth is causing swallowing problems then removal is indicated and likely to make you feel better overall.
Have you been exposed to toxic mold?
I have lived in a home with Chaetomium three years now and have experienced a 36 lb weight gain in one year and now have multiple nodules on Thyroid and am interested in hearing of other cases of mold exposure with thyroid problems.
