    Hello and welcome – this group isn’t super active, so you might also post this in our Facebook group to get some additional feedback.

    It’s very rare for Graves’ to recur after surgery, but can happen if there is living tissue left behind. These days, most surgeons do a total (or near-total) thyroidectomy to reduce this risk. It’s more common that a dose change with thyroid hormone replacement might be needed over time. Has your doctor reviewed your labs and made any recommendations regarding doseage? If you are starting to see eye symptoms crop up, definitely make an appointment with an experienced ophthalmologist – and make sure they know about your history of Graves’.
