    Partial Thyroidectomy - Any experience

    Hi, am having needle biopsy on Monday on several large nodules on one side of neck. Im not hypo or hyper and dont have hashis, just a goiter and large nodules on left side. Consultant is recommending partial thyroidectomy and says I wont have to take any medication afterwards. This sounds great but having read on a couple of forums it appears quite a few people experience hypo systems afterwards ie: severe weight gain, hair thinning, brain fog & tiredness. I am really worried because apart from the unsightly goiter I dont have any problems. Can anyone share with me their experience of partial surgery - good and bad (although good stories would be a comfort). Im almost of a mind that if my nodules are benign that I will refuse surgery despite my consultants view. for reading.......

    I have no experience with this unfortunately. Just wanted to say hi and fingers crossed your surgery is a success and no medicating is needed!!
