Welcome to ehealthforum.
Wait for her thyroid test results. Surgery can be done only if it is normal. The change in the bleeding pattern could be due to the bulky uterus. Discuss with her gynecologist about getting hormonal analysis (FSH, LH, Prolactin, DHEA) and repeat ultrasound done to look for hormonal abnormalities and possibility of fibroids, adenomyosis, or endometriosis.
Take care.
