Since my TT on 16th May I have had a horrendous time with my health and have not been able to yet return to work as it seems that I was probably fully replaced prior to surgery and it turns out I am very sensitive to changes in my medication. Prior to surgery I was on 100 mg of thyroxine then afterwards put on 150mg. I am now on 112.5 and my GP still thinks this will need to be reduced as my levels at the time of the drop from 125 to 112.5 were TSH 0.07 (0.35-3.5), FT4 19.7 (7.8 - 17.0), FT3 5.5 (3.4 - 6.00). I still feel far from well on 112.5 (problems sleeping, anxiety, tremors etc.) and am due to have blood test on 13th August. I do worry about dropping my throxine too much but do have a very good endocrinologist who is very supportive and cannot go on feeling so rubbish. I guess my main question is should I be aiming for the same blood test levels that saw me achieve good health prior to my TT or are these now irrelevant? I know I need to ask my endo this question but until then would really value the advice that you guys can offer as you are so knowledgeable.
