I have a fairly substantial goiter. Am heading towards surgery, perhaps in Jan or Feb.

The only thing offered under Medicare is a complete goiter/thyroid removal.

I am an ENDURANCE ATHLETE with no other health problems.

I have a consistent (as of the last 6 weeks to 2 months) sporadic chest Ache.

My goiter has displaced my Trachea at the Larynx about 1.5 cm from center to the right side.

I'm seeking feedback from anyone who may have had a similar trachea displacement and

also had a chest ache problem.

Have you discussed in depth the operation and the fact that you are an endurance athlete with your physician?

You'll get the best info from having the surgeon detail just what's involved, the recovery time and prognosis for your future, including your athletic activities.

Has the MD said the chest ache definitely is related to trachea displacement?
