The thyroidectomy is easy compared to dealing with methimazole! I had my thyroidectomy six months after Graves diagnosis. Surgery was outpatient, no problems at all. Quick recovery, minimal scar. My labs were normal right away. It has been five years and no regrets, no problems. Take my levothyroxine every morning, labs yearly and I feel exactly as I did preGraves. Just be sure your surgeon does a lot of these surgeries, makes all the difference.
