Surgery

In brief: Goiter

Work with your team, your doc.
If you have graves disease and radioactive iodine was recommended, there are several additional medications with benefit. Initial therapy and subsequent result is important for you and your doc to determine subsequent treatments. Don't avoid all care over your iodine and surgery limits.
