Thyroid Surgery and Weight Gain
I had my thyroid removed Oct `05. It was not from cancer. I did loose some weight afterwards, but not I`m gaining some back. I still excersie daily, my eating habits are the same. I stay away from fatty and greasy foods. I feel fatigued at time at the end of the day. My feet and hands swell up some. Have you heard of people having the same problems I am? Is there any more test I can have done to make me feel better and get my appetite back?
It is not possible to comment on the relationship between your weight changes and your thyroid surgery based on your information.
