Post-operative Hyperthyroid Therapy For Appendicitis?
, my cousin just had surgery due to appendicitis. Well, he also has a history of hyperthyroid disease. After surgery he was not given medication for his hyperthyroidism from the hospital. Does not matter? Or continue to use the hyperthyroidism drug (there are remnants of the drug at home)? Thank you …
Good evening, thanks for the question
Hyperthyroidism is an endocrine disease that requires long-term therapy so that hormone levels in the blood remain stable. In this case treatment of hyperthyroidism must be continued because it is not a contraindication. Because the history of appendicitis is in the realm of the department of surgery, so it generally does not treat pre-existing hyperthyroid conditions, unless there is a need to consult a doctor of internal medicine during the treatment period. Therefore, you should continue your hyperthyroidism therapy as recommended by the doctor.
That's all, hope you can help
