What Are The Side Effects After Mumps Surgery?
Hello, I want to ask, I have done more than 1 month of mumps and my neck is still around 1/4 from the normal thyroid gland and not taken completely … I heard that if a woman who has had a goiter surgery her child will become (sorry) midget .. Is that true? I heard that I was very scared. Moreover, I was also not married … and may I know what the side effects after mumps are?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Midgets or body postures that are shorter than normal, can occur due to several conditions called dwarfism and cretinism. A condition related to thyroid hormone levels is cretinism.
Cretinism, also known as congenital hypothyroidism, is a disease that occurs because there is a deficiency in thyroid hormone in newborns. This condition is characterized by decreased nerve function, stunted growth, facial deformities, pale skin, and mental retardation. This condition can be caused by various things, including:
Born to mothers with thyroid hormone conditions below normal or hypothyroidism
The content of iodine in mothers when pregnant is very less
Use of drugs that interfere with the production of thyroid hormones such as antithyroid drugs, sulfonamides or lithium during pregnancy
So the relation with the condition that you are conveying is to the person who took the thyroid gland, especially the total or taken completely, that person can enter the hypothyroid condition because the glands that should produce the hormone have already been taken. If the condition of hypothyroidism is not treated properly with hormone therapy or taking certain drugs and she is pregnant, her child can also experience hypothyroidism, which can lead to a condition of cretinism which is characterized by short postures or midgets.
However, it is not absolutely all certain. If your thyroid levels are normal during pregnancy, whether it's due to medication or not, you can still give birth to a healthy and normal child even if you have had surgery. Therefore, it is important for you to regularly control your condition with the doctor who treats you, especially if you plan to get married later. Actually it would be great if you discuss it from now on, while clarifying the information you get from us again to avoid misunderstanding. That way, your doctor can straighten out your understanding, understand your concerns, and determine the treatment targets that are most appropriate for you.
Then for the side effects of the operation itself is usually in the form of a hoarse or small voice, inflammation, pain in the neck, and the potential for infection. In those whose thyroid glands are all taken, they can also experience symptoms of hypothyroidism if not handled properly such as weight gain, easy to chill, lazy to do activities, and so forth. So, hopefully answering your question.
