Thyroidectomy diet: "there are no uniform general dietary restrictions for patients who have had thyroid surgery, however your surgeon may ask you to temporarily institute a low iodine diet if you need to receive radio-iodine treatment for cancer after thyroidectomy." http://www.Utsouthwestern.Edu/utsw/cda/dept48055/files/317737.Html.

None: Unless instructed by your doctor, you may eat whatever you wish. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
