In brief: Okay

This is usually easy to manage by thyroid replacement as required.
A heads-up -- maybe 1% of hashimoto's folks get a vasculitis that can involve the brain and mimic multiple sclerosis; it's treatable but it needs to be suspected before the call can be made. Complications of hashimoto's are rare; you can read about them on your own, get seen fast if the goiter grows fast.
