Many thyroid conditions have been and continue to be incorrectly diagnosed through exclusive use of TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) testing as the sole signifier of possible thyroid dysfunction. Unfortunately, TSH is wrongly considered by the majority of endocrinologists and many other physicians to be the only indicator required to produce an accurate and comprehensive analysis of one’s thyroid health. Because of this many people come away from their physicians as being misdiagnosed or having their thyroid condition completely disregarded.

I underwent a thyroid surgery last month to treat hyperthyroidism. A part of my thyroid gland was removed. I was reluctant to undergo the surgery. But, the doctors claimed that I was highly susceptible to thyroid cancer and that it is better to have it removed. I faced difficulties while swallowing and breathing.
I am married for around three years and we are trying to have a baby. The doctor said that it is not recommended to have antithyroid medicine during this stage.
I want to have a rhinoplasty surgery and have the best nose job results ( http://www.droakleysmithrhinoplasty.com/our-process/ ) from Toronto. I am planning to have it done before getting pregnant. Is it okay to have this procedure immediately after having a thyroid surgery? How long should I wait to have this rhinoplasty surgery? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
