You know who you could ask instead of randoms on the internet?

Your Dr (I'm going to assume you're TA) or Chillwell

While I can understand you wanting to get a heads up there is no point trying to second guess what the Dr will say. You'll either think you'll be fine and then be gutted when you're told you can't deploy, or, you'll get down because you think you can't deploy and have a miserable 2 weeks (depending how much you want to deploy of course) before being told you can deploy.

It's fine. You just go on the meds and then have regular blood tests. That is all!

It may take up to 6 months to feel normal. Do plenty of research yourself as it's quite complex. You should be prescribed levothyroxine. But you won't get binned.
