NF and Thyroid Nodules

While I did not have to have my thyroid removed I have been on medications for an under active thyroid for a couple of years. They have actually worked really well and I havent had and negative side effects.

I had part of my thyroid removed and I am on synthroid.(because of nodules) I wouldn't worry. Soooo many people I know who don't have nf take synthroid. You can live a full life with this condition.....Good luck...
