Usually the surgeon will see the patient a few times after surgery - so would follow-up iwth the surgeon about questions of infection, etc. I am not sure how it is done in Sidney, but here we would start thyroid medication and then perform RAI with the assistance of thyrogen to prevent the need to stop thyroid medications. The tumor size indicates the need for RAI. Long-term follow-up can be done with the surgeon, or more commonly - the endocrinologist/thyroid specialist. I hope that helps.
hi michelle here thanks for thatyep that does help the surgeon was general surgeon but he says he deals with thyroids.
