    Part of the reason I chose surgery was a fear of TED. I know that TED can happen, even after a thyroidectomy though (as did happen to Shirley). I have dry eyes, but otc tear drops help, and it’s not that bad. But, I would be a liar if I said that I’m not afraid of TED. I mean, it doesn’t occupy my days and my mind or anything, but it’s in the back of mind. I figured if I could avoid something that could contribute to it (like RAI), I would. But, again, I know there are no guarantees.
