    Hello and welcome! I’m not familiar with any specific post-surgery complications, but I would definitely ask your surgeon or endo.

    The biggest concern is generally *pre*-surgery, as the preference is to make sure that patients have normal thyroid hormone levels prior to any surgical procedure. If that’s not possible, patients are usually treated in advance with potassium iodide and beta blockers to reduce the risk of thyroid storm while the surgery is in process.
