Thanks for your query.
I shall assure you that the surgery done for thyroid nodules is most of the time uneventful.
But as in case of all surgical procedure although rare there can be complications.
The complications that can occur due to surgical treatment of the thyroid nodule are:-
1-Hoarse voice if vocal cord nerves are damaged during surgery,
2-Hypothyroidism resulting from surgery,
3-Low blood calcium levels can occur due to hypoparathyroidism if parathyroid glands are accidentally damaged or removed during surgery.
As for the good doctors in Varanasi I guess the ENT Surgeons at BHU and in Varanasi are quite competent and they shall be able to handle your mothers case.
Better idea can be taken from the local doctor.
Hope that this answer is helpful to you.
Take care.
