I have always been very healthy - in 2007 I joined weight watchers and lost 52 lbs - after losing the weight my blood work revealed that I may have had hyperthyroidism. I was diagnosed with two nodules. Each year since, my blood work has been normal and the size of the nodules have not increased. This year, one of the nodules has increased in size to 2.5 cm. Waiting on biopsy results, but even if benign my doc wants to have total removal of my thyroid. However, I feel great, have no symptoms and take no medicine. If I have thyroid removed, I would be on synthroid the rest of my life and I know there are difficulties and side effects! Anyone else have similar experience??
