I’ve been on carbimazole for nearly a year, my white blood cell count is very low, I have just been informed by my gp that I should never have been on carbimazole this long and should have had surgery. What can I expect from surgery and will my horrible symptoms disappear?
Surgery is one of the best options for thyrotoxicosis (Overactive Thyroid) , however the type of surgery (partial or total) depends on the type of overactive Thyroid that you may have.. Surgery is done under general anaesthetics and you usually stay in hospital just for one night.. you will bounce back from the surgery pretty quickly .. best to go and see a specialised endocrine surgeon to have more discussion about the details..
