Thyroid Eye Disease After Radiation Therapy

By June 1, 2011 - 10:46pm

Does anyone have experience with developing thyroid eye disease post radiation therapy e.g. bulging eyes, tearing, puffiness in eyelids and in undereye area? My doctor says it will likely be temporary, but some first hand experience as to how long it sticks around would be great!!

Welcome Akarr! At this time, we are still a growing group, and I am sorry to say that I have not yet had this problem to an extent that it has bothered me. I do however know of a friend that had this problem as well and will try to get her to join us here. First let me ask you, was the radiation therapy for you thyroid or for Graves' Ophthalmopathy? If you could let us know your story from the beginning we can have a better understanding of where you may currently be :)
