Am having the front and right side of thyroid removed due to nodules, won't be on thyroxin as i'll still have left side, will i put on weight?

Not likely: If your thyroid hormone level is normal, you will not put on weight. Follow your labs regularly to make sure you are still euthyroid (normal thyroid). Good luck with the surgery. ...Read more
