Hi, I am new to the fourm. My son was recently diagnosed with graves about a week ago. He is 13 years old. We believe he had graves for over a year probably longer. We just didnt put the symptoms together fast enough. He's been on meds for about a week. I was just wondering what to expect in the next few months. I know the process is long and the possibilty of surgery or RAI could be coming in the future. Do symptoms like sitting still, focus and mood ever come back? He's an ok student, I would say b, which now considering his disadvantage is probably good. We are new to the disease and worried parents. The internet and doctors have provided good information but it would be nice to hear from people who actually suffer from graves, especially parents of children who ae going through this.


Thanks for taking the time to read this

Hi there:


This is the chit chat lounge not related to thyroid discussion.


We moved your Qs from the Personal stories and some answers for about your son are over at the Graves' Disease and Thyroid Discussions.


See you over there.
