Hi The hormones are all over the place for a while post OP. I would ask for another blood test, TSH, T4 and Free T3. Also make sure you have been retested for the associated things , post OP including vit D, hormonal and iron/ferritin. B12 + foliates if not redone too.

Best wishes,



I have been gradually increasing from 50mg to 125mg and every increase brings on itching and dull headaches. They have gradually eased over the first 4 weeks of the increase


cheers that helps, thats a big jump. how are you feeling now
