I have a few questions I was hoping to get answers to from this great group!
I am 30 and have chosen to just go for a TT because I didn't feel comfortable with RAI and have been on a roller coaster with methimazole for 2 years. I've read a few posts about TT but wanted to solicit advice on a few specific questions:
1. How long did your recovery from the surgery take? I'm trying to figure out how much time to take off from work.
2. How long was your scar visible?
3. Did you gain lots of weight? I want to try and minimize weight gain and have been scared by all the reports of significant weight gain!!! I'm active and healthy - but I am also 5'1" so even small amounts of weight gain is quite obvious.
4. Are any of you on Naturethroid? I would like to try a natural supplement instead of Synthroid off the bat…
