My mother has been suffering from thyroid opthalmopathy from last one year. Symptoms: Thyroid hormone fluctuation (generally hyper, long term methimez (10 mg) usage turns into hypo) , eyes are swelled, protrusion from eye socket, redness, irritation and continuous watering. she is using steroids of different dose (60,50........5 mg) for her eyes from last 7 months. Recently, she is getting back pain continuously ( we are assuming, it is may be due to steroid usage) Now she is suggested to go for thyroid surgery which is planned at the end of this month. Here i am attaching the concern reports regarding this. Can you please go through and suggest, Is it really advisable and is there any other complications after surgery. It is completely curable......???? what is the success rate of this surgery......???
