Good morning, doctor! I have thyroid since 6 years. I am taking treatment, but my thyroid developed to hyperthyrodism. I have met many doctors but they said that I have thyroid in liquid state, so there is no possibility to remove the gland and I have to use the tab for life time. Please doctor help me is there is any treament for total removal of gland?
I'm afraid there is not enough useful information in this question for anyone to answer it. I don't understand what "thyroid in liquid state" means. I can't imagine a reason why surgery would never be indicated as a treatment for hyperthyroidism except for diseases that would be expected to go away by themselves, such a painless thyroiditis, subacute thyroiditis, and iodine-induced thyrotoxicosis.
