I was just recently diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. The good news is that it's literally 100% curable although I am going to have my thyroid gland removed.
I was curious if anyone has had their thyroid removed and if they had any problems maintaining a lean body after the removal. I've briefly mentioned to my doctor about concerns with my metabolism and he thought it might actually improve once I start my thyroid medication. I've always maintained body fat levels around 9% so have been kind of stressing over starting thyroid medication.
Ahhh, the vanity! At any rate, I'd appreciate any feedback from those with experience. Peace.
