Hi, you have been repeated treated with anti thyroid drugs and you have relapsed after that. The options are, go for thyroid scan and see if there is a hyper functioning nodule or the whole gland is diffusely hyper functioning. If there is a nodule which is hyper functioning, surgical excision is the option. If diffusely hyper functioning, radio iodine ablation or total thyroidectomy is the option. Both can/will lead to a hypothyroid status which is easier to manage and a desired end point in treatment. Regards
