I have goiter and my endo Dr. wants to remove my thyroid. He says it would be better for me emotionally and I could control it better. I would be simple to take the meds everyday and that's it, done. I feel very uneasy about this.
Have anyone here have their thyroid out and has it helped them to feel better, stayed the same, or gotten worst?
1. Thyroid removal helped to feel the same?
2. Thyroid removal has made me feel 100% better?
3. Thyroid removal has made me feel somewhat better?
Are you getting help in this group? I feel so alone in my end of the world with a doctor who is so inpatient with me. I am positive that my thyroid is acting up but she doesn't believe me since it doesn't show in bloodtests. She refuses to send me for more tests like a scan as she says she had one done on me a year and a half ago and there was nothing showing then.
