Can an ablated thyroid start functioning again?

From: Sue89502 - 18 weeks 2 days ago

Hello, everyone:
Can a thyroid that has undergone RAI ablation, and presumably "died," become active again? I suspect that mine has started coming back to life - like a zombie thyroid or undead thyroid or soemthing.

I keep getting recurring HYPERthyroid symptoms despite the doc lowering my Synthroid meds each time a lab confirms that I am hyperthyroid.

So, I was wondering if something else is wrong, or if my thyroid is slowly coming back to life, a little part at a time?

I've read that it can regrow. Have you had any tests to see since you posted?
