Is hair loss a common side effect of Thyroidectomy?

Not directly; however, many people end up being hypothyroid after a thyroidectomy because of being under medicated with replacement thyroid med.  And there are also some other variables that affect hair loss.  

If you will please post your current thyroid related test results and reference ranges shown on the lab report we can better assess your status.  Also, what thyroid med are you taking and what is the daily dosage?  Do you have other symptoms besides hair loss?
