Hashimoto's thyroiditis

Detailed Answer:
Good day.
A high anti thyroid peroxidase anybody levels indicate hashimoto's thyroiditis. However your thyroid was removed and hence in due course , the antibody levels will fall.
Regarding the ultrasound scan , it will be great if you could attach the report if possible. that will help me to decide further.
