In brief: Depends on cause

If they thyroid was completely "dead", it is unlikely to recover. But there are a number of transient hypothyroid conditions that could have prompted your doc to put you on synthroid (thyroxine) in the first place.
Transient conditions include subacute thyroiditis, post-partum thyroiditis.
