Daphne from Malaysia – Hyperthyroidism (with lovely scar pics!)

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in June 2013. The doctor gave me Carbimazole and I was allergic to the medication. I had 10 days of fever, coughing, and ulcers all over my throat as the medication killed all my white blood cells almost to zero. And I had no antibodies in my body which caused me to be sick. I also lost weight, about 10 kg (22 lbs), by the time I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism.

When the doctor decided to remove my thyroid gland, I thought positively that all this was given by God, God knows whats best for me. So I agreed for the doctor to to remove my thyroid gland and replace with the hormone pills, knowing I would be taking them forever. The doctor did suggest to try other methods for destroying my thyroid, like ingesting radioactive material, but it’s not guaranteed that my hyperthyroidism will be cured and it might come back.
Two years later and you can't even see it! Beautiful :)

It is now two years later and I’m feeling great. Much better after surgery although my TSH is still up and down.

    Hello! Would Daphne be able to share which doctors/hospital she went to? This is because I am also exploring a thyroidectomy in Malaysia and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, your scar looks great! Did you use anything in specific for it to reduce the scarring? I’ve been using Vitamin E oil but I’m afraid to use any unnatural products since I tried Maderma and had side effects. Thanks!
