Overcoming Prolonged Thyroid Gland Disease Accompanied By Neck Pain?
Afternoon, why can’t my thyroid gland be operated on? If others can do it, I have been sick with my thyroid gland for a long time since I was in high school until now, I haven’t recovered yet, I’m just told to take medicine and check my blood every 3 months. But it doesn’t get better” either, now I don’t take the medicine regularly and now the right side of my neck hurts, why is that? If I stop taking medicine and change to alternative medicine, will the glands heal?rnrnThank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Thyroid gland disorders, both hypothyroid and hyperthyroid do not always require surgical treatment. This is because there is a risk in performing each surgical procedure which if it is done even though it has not been indicated, the loss could be greater than just being left without surgery.
In addition, other possibilities are inadequate facilities or other clinical conditions, such as blood clotting disorders and so on, which cause you to still not have surgery until now. Actually, the one who can answer this best is the doctor who has been treating you, because he is the one who knows best the results of your physical examination.
Our advice, do not use alternative medicine because there is no sufficient data to support the benefits of alternative medicine. Let's say the treatment has worked for some people, you don't know the success percentage whether it can be 80%, 50%, or only 2% and that person is included in the 2% because of luck. Lack of data and supporting evidence has made alternative medicine not recommended.
If you feel that your treatment has not been helpful, know that you have the right to get a second opinion from another internist. If indeed your second doctor states that you do not need surgery, it means that based on the results of the examination, it is indeed the best decision to postpone the operation. To relieve pain, your doctor may prescribe certain painkillers for you. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
