I don't know what: having a thyroid cancer removed would have to do with your methamphetamine problem, but I don't think they are related, and one has nothing to do with the other. Methamphetamine is rapidly metabolized and excreted, and usually drug tests are negative 3-5 days after last use. It cannot be positive in urine 6 months later, but hair testing can detect it for that long or longer, depending on length.

No: Thyroid cancer and/or its removal will have no impact on positivity of drug testing in any significant way. Neither methamphetamine or Methadone (not sure which meth you mean) will stay positive in urine or blood, but hair testing can detect drug use 6 months earlier if the hair is long enough.
