When is it time to surgically remove the thyroid gland due to multinodular thyroid disease?I have had multinodular thyroid disease for many years. My thyroid gland works perfectly, but I have been monitored by various endocrinologists for years. I take Synthroid to get the nodules in check. However, in January, my tests (an ultrasound and a nuclear medicine scan) showed I now had 6 large fluid filled cold nodules. The Dr assured me they are benign. My Dr. increased my thyroid dosage for 6 months to see if there would be any improvement. I just had another ultrasound prior to my doctor's appt next week & now I have 30-40 nodules. I have some difficulty swallowing, especially at night if I lay on my back, and my neck sometimes hurts. I am I know that the medical people are reluctant to remove a thyroid gland that works, but I am beginning to feel that maybe it is time for the surgery. I am 54 and in good health otherwise. Has anyone else had this situation? Do you think I should discuss this with the endocrinologist and maybe get a 2nd opinion?

Problems gaining weight?Sorry but this is more of an answer. I read a post about someone having problems gaining weight, and one of the replies was 'be lucky you have that kind of a body". I just wanted to say that I also struggle to gain weight, and it's an embarrassing thing, being thin and having people look at you like you have an eating disorder. I have done a lot of research on this issue and talked to my physician, and found that the best way to gain weight is to simply increase your calorie intake by about 500 calories per day, and do weight training to build muscle. It's actually very unhealthy to be underweight, just as it to be overweight. It can cause serious health problems. So if anyone has this problem, maybe talk to your doctor first it could be a thyroid problem. Just thought I'd comment, sorry that it's not a question.

Can my remaining thyroid be stimulated to work without medicine after half has been surgically removed?Half of my thyroid was taken out to remove a benign nodule which had made me hyperthyroid.

I was hoping the remaining half of my thyroid would start to work so that I could avoid taking medication. Has anyone had luck with this? What steps did you take?

Determining conception dates?Okay, I tried for 10 years to have a baby. I have thyroid disorder, and a couple of uterine complications, as it turns out. I ended up pregnant very much by surprise...I am estimated to be 14 weeks on Wednesday. Here is where I am confused though....It is said by doctor that baby was conceived in August...Here is the basic facts about August for me....I only had sex on two days in August, on Aug 4th and Aug 21. I had a strange, early period on Aug 9 that only lasted for 3 days. (Normal for me is 7 days). I have been told possibly conceived baby on the 4th not the 21st, as would be more likely. How does this work? How is this possible? What would be the chances baby was conceived prior to the early period? And what is the accuracy that the doctor could possibly know for sure? Have had two ultrasounds, and they still question it...Any way to know for certain?

Misdiagnosis.....do I need an attorney?Over a year ago, I went to my doctor about a chronic cough at night which sounded like I had Croupe. I had already been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and had been on medication for 2 years. He told me my cough was acid reflux and prescribed Prilosec. It didn't work. I saw him again this spring, still complaing of the cough and now wheezing along with a swollen gland. The diagnosis for the swolled gland was a viral infection. The wheezing was allergy induced asthma and the cough still acid reflux. He gave me an inhaler and told me to try a different over the counter antacid. I started retaining fluid and the cough worsened. I still have the swollen gland. I saw the nurse practioner who stated the same thing as the doctor, I'm sure after reading his notes. I finally convinced her on a 2nd visit to do an ultrasound of my thyroid. I have a nodule and now have to have a biopsy. It could be cancer, as I have all the symptoms. Should I get an attorney?

I have a question about my Thyroid.?I've been going to a Dr. about my thyroid for a few years now. I have a large nodule on one side and the other side is slightly larger than it's supposed to be. He's done the dye test to check for cancer and has done several biopseys. Both come back fine. My concern is this: He's done three ultrasounds the first two came back pretty much the same, the last one showed that the size has increased slightly but the shape has changed a lot on the one side. He said he's going to do anther biopsey and ultrasound in six months. Do I need to go to another Dr? Why would he keep doing biopseys every six months?
