Dear Doctor - I had a left hemithyroidectomy on 1.6.2011 followed by a completion thyroidectomy on 29.6.2011.
For your information I am 67 years old. My Left Hemithyroidectomy lobe measured 5x5x5 cm and
on completion Thyroidectomy where my right lobe measured 4.5x2.5x1.5 cm.
I was administered with Thyroxine Replacement Therapy 100 mcg daily. I got for my Laboratory Test Results today 4.8.2011 which came out follows:-
Calcium - 2.25 mmol/L
- 9.0 mg/dL
Thyroxine T4 - 93 nmol/L
T3 - 1.11 ng/mL
- 0.72 ng/mL
TSH - 6.39 mIU/L
Parathyroid Hormone Intact (iPTH) - 6.7 pmol/L
With the outcome of the above result, have I still have to go for the Radioactive Iodine Treatment (1-131) or can I just ignore it and just continue taking Thyroxine100 mcg daily (for life).With the above result.
Awaiting for your reply with anxiety.
