In brief: Ask your doctor

They should answer all questions you have about what your thyroid condition was, is and will likely be.
What you need to avoid, expect, etc. The treatment you should be on would be based on regular testing to keep you close to normal - neither hypo or hyper. This follow-up is really part of the treatment you had - please talk to them. Take care and be well.

In brief: Yes.

If you're taking synthroid (levothyroxine) now after the procedure, it's because you are now hypothyroid.
