Hi, I noticed a lump on my neck about 11 years ago I had it scanned at my local hospital and was told its a groiter nothing to worry about so forget about it, so I.
About September this year I started to get very tired, could not stay up after nine and my body would hurt like I had the flu, I would get a dry mouth and blocked ears and my head would feel dry. At the end of September a friend took a photo and I noticed the lumps on my neck, there was now two and the first had grown. So went to gp and said I wanted them taken off, and in passing told her of my other symptoms. By that afternoon I had an appointment with an ent (hubby has insurance) for the following week. I had blood test and my thyroid function was normal, so had a fna and that came back as a level 3 so was recommended a full TT just in case of cancer. So I had it done on the 7/12/13. Today I went to see my surgeon he said he thinks I've had thyroiditis for years and that my results for cancer are still inconclusive so a sample has been sent to a London hospital. I hope to find out before Christmas but I'm not holding out.
Since the operation my energy levels have been ok, but my hair and skin is now greasy. My voice is a little weak, as the op was tricky should have take 45mins took 2.5 hours! But it is getting better. I also at times get very cold.
I've been put on levothyroxine 100 micrograms.
This has all happened so fast I'm not sure I've taken it all in yet! Any advice would be very helpful xxx
