I am trying to find out if it is possible to lose weight (significantly) after a THYROIDECTOMY. I am 31 years old and I had a thyroidectomy at 29 while I was 7 months pregnant, due to a compression on my windpipe. I was about 201lbs when I had the surgery, and after the surgery I went up to 220. Recently, I lost 7 lbs. but I really don't know how. I drink a lot more water than I use to. I walk 20 min. a day. I eat basically the same, but not that much. Because most of the time after I get off of work at 5pm and pick up my four children from three different spots, and after doing the usual parent thing. I'd rather sleep than eat. But what want to know is significant weight loss like 60 + lbs. possible. Are there any people who have had a thyroidectomy been successful with significant weightloss? Please post stories.
