Welcome to HCM
The key features of hyperthyroidism
is weight loss
inspite of increased appetite, depression
, palpitations, and much more. these symptoms are experienced when the hormone levels are increased. The better option and my suggestion is to use drug therapy to control the levels.
If you go for thyroidectomy
that is thyroid removal, then you will go in hypothyroidism
state which have the features exactly opposite to the hyper state that is weight gain inspite of normal appetite, bradycardia
, dry and rough skin, coarse hairs, depression here as well and then you will need to take exogenous thyroxine.
A surgery is an option to be availed if it is a definite cure but if you still have to go for medicine use for your whole life even after a surgery which involves your organ removal than in my opinion it is of no use. However you can discuss with your doctor about partial thyroidectomy in which a single lobe of the thyroid is removed. Consult with your doctor if it will be effective to have it. if it is then go for it but if you can have any surety then don't expose your self to a scar on your front neck.
