Thyroid

My thyroid was tested more than 4 years ago and frequently afterwards is underactive and was then declared as not functioning at all by a General Surgeon. I was on Eltroxin initially and then the General surgeon changed my medication to Diotroxin. My weight has increased quite a lot over the past year, but I also gave birth in May last year and since then I have not lost an inch. I still have many of the simptoms of Hyperthyroidism. Can you please refer me to a specialist that deals with thyroid problems in Pretoria? Or can you give me some advise on this? The General Surgeon also told me he will not remove my thyroid as it is no longer functioning and I will only be sitting with an ugly scar if I do.
