thyroid condition after lobectomy?
I had the right lobe of my thyroid removed due to a non cancerous multinodular goiter. I’m doing great and have normal function, no medication, life is good. I’m supposed to get my levels checked annually but aside that I don’t need to worry unless I develop hypothyroid symptoms. So now I’m wondering, what the heck do I call my thyroid condition now? I forgot to ask my surgeon. I feel normal but I know future docs will need to know about my surgery. Is there a medical term I should use for this? because "normal half thyroidless" sounds silly. I am in the process of moving so I’ll have a whole new wave of doctors to deal with.
thank you Diane for a nice answer
