I had my thyroid removal surgery 3 days ago...I was in the hospital for about 48 hours after surgery...Things went well from what I know...They did tell my husband that I lost a lot of blood, which is what my OB was worried about...They took out my right side that had cancer and took it away to examine it before they took out the left (even though they knew it was cancer, they just did it to be sure)...The cut is bigger than I thought it would be, and higher on my neck too...I'm in a lot of pain, and the pain med's are making me feel sick so I'm not taking them as much as I should...I started a new thyroid medication, I know take it 3 times a day along with calcium supplements 3 times a day...My post op appointment is I think Thursday and we will take the stitches out (he said it's just one really long stitch)...I also have to go see my thyroid doctor in a couple of weeks...Everything went well with the baby too...They came in and listened to her heartbeat a couple times a day while I was in the hospital...I can't wait for this to heal and I can feel like myself again...I'm glad it's all over with.

Hope you are feeling better soon! I remember my endo telling me my options were RAI or surgery and he said thyroid surgery is not pleasant. Hope it improves soon. Good luck.

I too hope you continue to heal. I was also wondering the same thing. Isn't the treatment for thyroid cancer removal of the thyroid? That's what I was told.

I will have to do the Radio active iodine treatment after I have the baby...I'm not sure when i'm going to do it or how long they will let me wait till after she is born...I haven't met with my endo yet...They actually called me a few times today...My medication got mixed up and they had me stop the one I was on, when I still need to take it and I need to take this new one for only 7 more days and only 2 times a day (they had me taking it 3 times a day)...She just called me back and made me an appointment for October 14th so I can ask the doctor questions and he can explain to me more of what's going to happen next after I have the baby...Has anyone here done the Iodine treatment?
