What's your question: I'm not sure how to help since you have not asked a question! but i can give general advice- many doctors treat hypothyroidism inadequately. Ask your doctor to check free t3.

What are the chances for patient below 30 y.O & euthyroid to be hypothyroid after hemthyroidectomy? Will the other lobe be enlarged after?

Possibility: It is certainly a possibility, and many would begin thyroid replacement immediately after surgery to prevent enlargement of the remaining lobe and the future formation of nodules (which i assume is why you had the surgery in the first place). If your whole thyroid can't work well enough to avoid problems, what makes you think that half of it can do better? Talk w/your endocrinologist. ...Read more
