Hello - You can use the “search posts” feature when you are logged in to check out stories from other patients. Try keyword “thyroidectomy”, and you should get several hits.
Also, if you are on Facebook, we have a closed group there where a lot of regular posters have had surgery.
The GDATF's videos and playlists on YouTube (search for channel name GravesAndThyroid) also have some great info.
Wishing you all the best!
