      Has anyone heard or think it is possible to have a thyroid transplant? This may sound far fetched but with
      technology increasing in other areas, does anyone know or think it could be possiblein the wave of the future? Research in the graves area has not been so tremendous. But I am sure some people wouldn’t mind the chance as long as it wasn’t from a cow or a pig! (Ha Ha) Any thoughts, comments or otherwise……

        Dee, I almost thought it was an ok idea for a second there! Then I said “NO” to myself! I don’t care that my thyroid it dead or half dead or whatever and I don’t care about taking the medicine everyday.

        What I HATE are those terrible antibodies attacking my poor little eyes! I would opt for recycled blood. Oh well, maybe someday soon!

          If a new thyroid gland was transplanted to our bodies, the antibodies would attack it and make us hyper again (and our treatment choices would be anti-thyroid drugs, RAI, or surgery–same as now). Dianne N

            What are the affects of Graves? Does everyone who gets it go through the same thing? If they get my thyroid back to normal will the swelling in my eye go away? My Endo said the eye will probably stay the same or get worse but I don’t understand why if they fix the thyroid. Any advice? What does the future hold for someone with Graves?
