surgery to eradicate the entire thyroid gland

My wife suffers from an overactive thyroid hormone

Since three years has been to control the use of hormone medication neomercazole

And after pregnancy and birth (a period of two years)

Returned again to the hormone activity

Was then controlled again with the same drug in nine months

analysis and X-ray made this week

This image shows the thyroid tests and ratios described ratios appear normal gland hormones, thyroid

The other image shows ultrasound scanning of the thyroid gland

Images were presented to the surgeon concerned



The doctor told us

That has to be the work of the surgery to eradicate the entire thyroid gland completely the presence of nodules

Because the drug user is neomercazole

Long-term risk to the patient

Is this diagnosis correct by Dr.

Do you have to be completely eradicate the thyroid gland


Question here

Is it possible to continue with medicine instead of surgery?

Or is there a risk of continuing with the drug

Will return gland activity again?

I hope to respond quickly

Thank you
