I'm 1 week post op. I had half my thyroid removed and have been super thirsty since operation. Is this normal?

Hey there

Sounds like during your operation they didn't give you enough fluids, so you're making up for it now. After one of my ops, when I came round, my mouth felt like I'd been buried in a desert for a week. I was so unbelievably dehydrated.

So don't worry about it, and besides, you're supposed to be drinking at least 2 litres a day. So I doubt it will be hurting you.
