I posted another thread about radiation-associated carotid stenosis and have a marginally-related follow up question...I elected to start a new thread. One of the things that that diagnosis did was stimulate me to go ahead and go Basic Med, so I now have Basic Med and a Class 3 that's valid for another year. One of the other effects of neck radiation is thyroid damage. I am hypothyroid as a result (no big deal...easily managed) and I was given a Special Issuance for that until 2026, with an every-two-year report required from my PCP regarding the status of that hypothyroidism. At this point, I plan to not get a new Class 3 when this one expires, and will just fly under Basic Med. My question: What do I do about the Special Issuance if I'm not seeing my AME? Do I just submit the PCP statement and lab value to the FAA myself? Or do I need to see an AME for maintenance of this thyroid SI? I'm wondering how to maintain this Special Issuance if I'm not getting an FAA Medical?
