    Hi, and welcome to our Board.

    While it is possible for a few of us to suffer long-term damage — hyperthyroidism is very bad for the body — most of us recover and go on to lead healthy lives again.

    So, cooperate with your doctor and the treatment plan, and treat your body gently for a while: good nutrition, appropriate recreation, and appropriate rest. And look forward to getting your life back eventually. As Ski pointed out, I think, focus on “improvement” rather than absolutes. It helps us to stay patient.

    I hope you feel better soon.
