This is all moving so fast. Saw an Endo for the first time two weeks ago, ultra sound that day, biopsy two days later, pre-surgery consult yesterday and surgery scheduled for Oct. 5th. They are going to do a total thyroidectomy. My question is....is it normal to not see an Endo until a month after surgery? What about hormone replacement? They are scheduling the RAI for 6 weeks after surgery. It seems like if they take out the thyroid they should be putting me on replacement med's?
Has anyone else had a TT and no med's immediately after? What should I expect?
