I have my surgery on Tuesday and am about to become a member of our group of ex-thyroid owners. Its not the surgery that bothers me, its what life will be like afterwards. I'm a runner and frequent the gym 3-4 times/week. I'm concerned that I'll loose energy and gain weight and the like. Is it possible to regulate back to pre-surgery weight and activity levels. My doctor has assured me that I'll return to my normal life but after reading some other posts, i'm not sure. What has been your experience and is there any advise you can offer?
