Hello
I had my Thyroid removed about 8 years ago. It was cancerous but it was successfully removed and treated. I do take thyroid pills with my seizure medications. I’ve had blood work and scans done many times after the surgery. Everything has continued to be good. My thyroid dr is recommending a full body scan. I’d need to be on a low iodine diet for a couple weeks. I’ll also be having a thyroid ultrasound. I will be in touch with my neurologist beforehand.
I struggle to gain weight. My seizures have been less frequent than they’ve been in years. Stress is a big trigger for me.
Preventive measures. 🙄

Hi Heavy Kevy,

I just went through the ultra sound testing a couple of months ago and my Dr. is keeping watch on my thyroid also.
I found that just trying to keep myself busy so I don't have time to think about what is going on or what is going to happen
and that helps lower the stress a lot for me. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

Thanks for your response. 😊
I know I need to keep an eye on it and get all the testing done. Just gets frustrating when my seizures happen and I feel like I have enough health issues to worry about. Never mind looking for new ones.
Thanks again
