I had one postop TT checkup at six weeks and he did an ultrasound in the office, even tho he was positive he got it all. He had done it preop too. Thyroid cancer patients get followup to be sure nothing at all is left and my doc felt it was just as vital for Graves patients. I think there may other tests like scintigraphy to look for the tiniest of thyroid tissue left behind.
