:confused: Could someone please help ? I just had my left half of my thyroid removed,wow was that painful,due to a enlarged goiter. But with half of it gone now wouldnt I need to take medication ? Or something ? my surgeon said since I still have 1/2 of it left I shouldnt need anything but hes going to still test me in 3 weeks or so.
Thank you for any input.
