I had a total thyroidectomy because of multi-nodules which were decending into my thorax just over 8 weeks ago.1st Thyroxine dose of 150 was way too much & had to be changed to 100 after 2 weeks. The symptoms are much improved in some ways but I am having difficulty in coping with others. My energy levels & mood can vary rapidly from extreme to extreme cycles from high to low which sometimes can be triggered within a single day by relatively small things, which can vary also from day to day. The energy high is wonderful, all my aches and pains are gone and I can rule the world. This is contrasted by the low cycle depression, tearfulness & awful fatigue which makes it impossible for me to carry out even basic personal care. The cycles can change within a day but usually they last about 3/5 days each. Doctor says it is normal until the system settles down and could take up to 6 months to stablise. I am finding this extremely difficult to cope as neither myself nor my husband cannot plan from one day to the next. I would appreciate any advice that can help to cope with these severe changes. Many thanks
