I was Hyperthyroid but now my condition is stable. However I have been told that in up to 90% of men the condition could re-occur. The option is to have it out and go onto Thyroxin for life. Does anyone have any DIRECT experience of this - please don t suggest web pages etc, I have got them. I have been Hyperthyroid but now am stable, although still on a small dose of carbimazole. I have also had TED. As up to 90% of men in my age group have a recurrence of thyroid problems should I have it out and go onto thyroxine ? Has anyone found problems with this. I have a good surgeon and good advice but it comes down to personal choice. Please ONLY reply if you have DIRECT experience, don t send me to websites etc as i have seen most of them.
