Hi Tanodip,

Not sure if you are asking what therapy after thyroid removal? After a thyroidectomy you would be getting a medicine like Synthroid to replace your thyroid. You need something or you would feel really sick.

You will also be told to increase the calcium in your diet as a daily supplement. Take it with dairy products if possible. Low calcium will fatigue you and cause other problems. Never stop taking the thyroid medication. We are unable to survive without it. Good luck with learning about your new status. Levothyroxine is most often prescribed. Follow the doctors orders and you will be fine.
