Hi my name is elle,
 
I had a total thyroidectomy back in 2007, followed by radioiodine treatment, since then i'v had a lot of problems with my chest, lungs, was diagnosed with asthma just last year, have been on inhalers for a year, however this year the asthma has got a lot better and has almost gone, don't take the inhalers now.

However when ever i go swimming in the sea in cold water the minute i get up to my chest, my chest gets extremely tight and it gets difficult to breath, I start wheezing really badly. Before my surgery this never happened to me, I was just wondering if anyone is having the same problem after their surgery?
