Thyroid problem

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We have a concern, my fiance has this thyroid problem. At first it was a really minimal problem but she decided to check it out with the doctor if it is normal or what. And they did a blood test on her showing normal values except a little bit high on the thyroid hormone level. So the doctor prescribed her a drug to take everyday and to go back in a month..So when she went back her thyroid hormone level is now low and shows the thyroid grew a little bit, so it was a big concern that the doctor told her that she needed surgery. My fiance is really scared and she doesn't really want to have a surgery because she felt it would make her feel ugly. So she decided to go to another hospital and different doctor who really specializes on thyroid problem, and the doctor told her that she was fine that she doesn't needed the surgery. He said to stop taking the medication because it is what causing her thyroid to be higher and lower and making it more complicated. He told her that the doctor should have never even prescribed her a medication with just one test showing one little abnormal values of TH. We were so upset about that, I felt like suing the doctor and the hospital but my fiance didn't wanted to do it even if she was very upset about it. She just didn't want to spend money and waste time over it. She is just happy that she went to a different doctor and won't be needing a surgery. The doctor tells her she might be Eurothyroid, and just need to have a healthy diet and stop taking any medication that would upset the thyroid level and then have a blood test again to check her levels.

My question is, if she take the medical exam in St.Lukes, would that be a problem for her if she does have a thyroid problem and shows abnormal level. Will she be denied? Would it be fixable such maybe treating her and then take the medical exam and then can she passed? So with her having thyroid problem i guess it is best that she take the medical exam before the interview date, am I right? Were just so worried about this. I'm hoping it's no problem.

AS LONG AS IT IS NOT A COMMUNICABLE DISEASE IT WOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM.

I AGREE WITH THE PREVIOUS REPLIES, HIV AND TB ARE U.S.A. MAIN CONCERN. ALSO, I THINK TO TRACE THYROID PROBLEM IT NEEDS A SPECIAL TEST THAT I THINK SLEC IS NOT TAKING.

I HAVE AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE BUT IT NEVER BECAME A PROBLEM.

TELL YOUR SWEETHEART THAT SHE SHOULD TAKE LOTS OF VITAMIN C PRIOR TO THE TEST, I REALLY THINK IT WILL HELP A LOT.

GOD BLESS!!!! :star::star::star::star::star::star:

Hi thank you all for the replies, that feels much better knowing it is not rili a concern for her having a thyroid problem.

She doesn't want to have a surgery for many reasons. Surgery is too expensive and we don't have money to pay for that, second she watch a video of the thyroid surgery on youtube and it scared her, third she doesn't want to have a big scar on her neck, and last is that she really doesnt want surgery, it would be her last option if possible, that is why she went to different hospital for a different doctor and ask for another opinion about her thyroid problem. I pray God that she gets well and in good health.

Thanks Again!

God Bless!

Make sure she keeps an eye on that TSH level in the future with blood tests....my TSH was not that much over the "norm" but I became quite ill after a while, the medication has improved my health greatly. Surgery is very much a last resort. It won't cause any issue with her visa application.

Good luck!

I too am Hypothyroid. That means that my TH (thyroid) hormone levels are low. I take a pill for it. The surgery sounds like they are talking about the goiters. That is a common thing for people with thyroid problems and that is when the gland is bigger. The neck is where the thyroid is located. You may already know that, but I wanted to say that just in case since you were wondering what kind of surgery they might be referring to. I didn't have to have surgery either.
