Diet post thyroidectomy

I have to now have a total thyroidectomy following a partial.  The initial frozen section was read as benign but the final rest results on the nodule that was removed came back as follicular carcinoma.  There was an incidental finding of a 0.3 cm papillary carcinoma.  There was total encapsulation with minimal invastion.  My question has to deal with any diet restrictions following the second surgery.  I don't add any salt to anything anyway, but will there be anything I will not be able to eat as far as food?

I did not have to follow any diet plan after mine, nor have I had too in the 17yrs since.
