What would you like to do?
Yes. It is practically impossible for a surgeon to remove every cell when performing a thyroidectomy. When taking thyroid hormone replacement medication following surgery, thyroid tissue that grows back will not be stimulated to produce thyroid hormone. However, if the patient discontinues medication after confirming regrowth, the new gland may start to overproduce. The result, hyperthyroidism all over again.

If diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis can your thyroid fluctuate back to normal and then above normal without being on medication?
Yes, thyroid levels can and often do fluctuate from low to high and back low again in Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Much depends upon your antibody activity (which fluctuates frequ…ently) and your consumption of iodine and other goitrogenic foods.No, continue to see your doctor. Hashimoto's thyroiditis or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease where the body's own antibodies attack the cells of the thyroid. Treatment is with daily thyroxin (with the sodium salt of thyroxine liothyronine). It is administered when the need to raise levels of circulating thyroxine is urgent.

I have had several thyroid biopsies and all of them were back within 2 to 3 days. I had one last Tues and it's still not available, altho the holiday weekend may be the reason…. I guess it's up to the pathologist doing the work it involves.
