I have a thyroid tumor and have been putting off having surgery because of no insurance and not being able to afford the medical bills. I still owe money from having a kidney removed last year. In the meantime, my health continues to deteriorate and I'm in pain. The surgeon I talked to said I should have the left half with the tumor removed and shouldn't wait too long and that was about two months ago.
I've researched until I'm blue in the face yet can't find proof anywhere of any other method (natural or otherwise) to cure the kind of problem I'm having. I've been trying to eat healthy food, take supplements that are supposed to fight cancer, etc. but not sure that they are helping as I'm getting more and more fatigued.
I'm curious if any Gather members or anyone in their families have had thyroid surgery for any reason and what your experience has been as far as the surgery, recovery, how it has affected your health, etc.
