    2to 3 months seems like a long time for iodine to be excreted. At any rate, make an appointment to see an ENT surgeon who does a lot of thyroidectomies. Neither my endo nor family doctor referred me to a surgeon, I went myself. A surgeon well familiar with Graves will have no prpblem deciding when you can have surgery. My surgeon actually set my synthroid dose and ordered my labs for six months postop. If no one in your area has the experience, travel to a nearby unversity or other center with an experienced thyroid surgeon, Antithyroid drugs can be toxic even above and beyond allergic reactions. The sooner you can get your thyroid out, the better.
