I was diagnosed with an over active thyroid 5 months ago, i was put on carbimazol but still that did not control my thyroid. I am scheduled to have a total thyrodectomy next month. I founf out that i am pregnant, i am so worried because i do not know what to do? Can i keep the baby if i still have the operation next month, would i be allowed the operation? Would the baby be born with any defects and what health issues would i face? Is there any danger of aborting the baby to my health before i have the operation?
Welcome to HCM,
As you have hyper thyroidism and going for surgery it is better to go for MTP.
There is danger of effect of anesthesia and effect of hyper thyroid on fetus.
Consult your Obst and endocrinologist and discuss with them.
Ok and bye.
