We live in Thailand , and my wife has just noticed that her neck was showing signs of swelling on the bottom part , both sides.
So we went to out local Thai Hospital where the ENT doctor felt her neck and told us its a Thyroid problem, and he took a blood sample and prescribed Two
types of drugs ..

1. Prednisolone
2. Eltroxin

He then asked my wife to return in Two weeks for a check up and may be a second blood test

From our past experiences with the Thai medical system, ( not too good ) we are looking for some help along the way, from people who have experienced Thyroid problems.

Can some one please just outline what we should expect the Doctor to do next?
And any general comments or advice,

Thanks ....... Star
