For those of you who have stumbled across this blog in search of information about thyroid surgery, hopefully this page will make things a little easier to navigate!
In December 2010, I had surgery to remove my overactive thryoid.
Thyroid conditions have often been linked to coeliac disease, and having suffered from hyperthyroidism for as long as I can remember, it has been a big part of my life!
Before having my thyroid removed I was on medication for years, it then went into remission before becoming overactive again.
This time, I decided I wanted it out!
Before my operation I was in a blind panic of googling and after not being able to find much information on people’s personal experiences of the surgery, I was a nervous wreck.
I have created this page in the hope that if you are going through thyroid surgery or have just had an operation, it might put your mind at ease a bit!
Here’s all my thyroid related posts so far (will keep updating as and when I post – newest at the top!)….
For those of you who want to see the gory details (If you’re having/had the surgery I know you’re dying to see what the scar looks like!) here’s some images (which I hope to update regularly!) on the progression of my scar.
For those of you who are a little squeamish, look away now!
