Hello

I'm new here and in search of support and answers. I am scheduled for right thyroid love to my in a few weeks. Scared out of my loving mind. Do you gain or lose weight after this surgery? Is anyone on iron supplements afterwards? How soon after surgery can I resume normal activities? Thank you in advance!

Probably going to need a little medication to make up for the loss. Will likely get hypothyroid. Try to get your TSH below 2.5. they should monitor it for a bit after all that. Shouldn't be too much a problem if you can get the medication mix right.

Iron is important with thyroid issues. But I don't think Iron supplements are related or should be taken normally. Possibly if you are having Iron issues, you have other nutrient deficiencies.

I'm not a women though and of course there are factors that may affect Iron more. Just work with your doctor on that stuff. But Iron supplements are usually discouraged long term.
