Treatment decisions are very individual – antithyroid meds, radioactive iodine, and thyroidectomy all have risks and benefits. If you feel that thyroid removal is right for you, don’t be afraid to speak up or to seek a second opinion. A consultation with an experienced surgeon might also be of value. The catch with surgery and RAI is that you don’t get a do-over if you change your mind, so you want to have a high degree of certainty that this is the option for you!
