Endocrinologist 's  Response
Hi: i am an endocrinologist. You say you was diagnosed with hypothyroid, but you have hyperthyroid symptoms. Some times over replaced treatment for hypothyroid can cause these symptoms.What is your thyroid reports, Free T4 and TSH. Are you taking any tablets for your thyroid problem. It seems nothing to do with surgery. These are 100% treatable. Get an opinion from your local Endocrinologist. Good luck.
