In regards to thyroid issues it's interesting how the thyroids works. I actually had my thyroid removed earlier this year because I had an unknown tumor and it was cancerous I found out also. It was tough for me to have it removed but it was like waking up from the dead. I feel Iike I am a totally different person now and I am happy. I feel like the thyroid operates my body now and it's interesting to know. I am also on medication now to replace my thyroid and it's working really well. I lost alot of weight when my thyroid was removed, and now I feel like I am gaining some back which sucks for me. I want to keep my weight off any advice from anyone, I just feel now my thyroid medication has worked into my system already. But again I feel good my thyroid is out now.View Thread
