I had a complete thyroidectomy when I was 19 years old. I never presented any hyper/hypothyroid symptoms, as it turned out I had a cyst on my right thyroid lobe, and on the third biopsy there was a presence of abnormal cells, suspicion that they might be cancerous (first two biopsys were fine, I guess third time's the charm). So I had to have surgery, first they wanted to remove the right lobe, test it and find if it was cancerous at all, but during the surgery they couldn't completely determine, and ended up removing my whole thyroid. (Btw, the full testing after the surgery concluded that no cells were cancerous. And now I had no thyroid at all. Go figure).
I am now about to turn 32 years old, and after many years of ups and downs, and trying different medications, I've finally found some normalcy and have been on Armour Thyroid for the past 4 years (the most successful of all the thyroid meds out there that I tried). My husband and I are going to start trying for a family within the next year, and I was hoping to find out from any other people out there that have had complete thyroidectomys, how they are doing, if they had trouble conceiving, how pregnancy was, etc. Welcoming any and all stories =), thanks.
