Customer Question

I am 38 years old and not having thyroid gland. Had l radioactive iodine when I was 20 years old. Last few years having problem with breast abscesses and had 3 surgeries already. I am on 150 micrograms of thyroxin tablets daily. I am not pregnant or breast feeding. Do you think there is any link of my thyroid problems with breast abscesses?
Many thanks,
