Over 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Graves Disease. Following two unsuccessful rounds of RAI, I had a TT last August. Afterwards I was started on 125mg of Levothyroxine, but blood test and symptoms suggested that was too high. The dose was dropped to 100mg and then halved and halved again over next 3 months and by early this year medication was stopped completely. Symptomatically I am now hypothyroid but my consultant is insisting that the blood results show the TSH as undetectable and says biochemically I am hyperthyroid and what I really need is more RAI. I objected -because it doesn't make any sense to me, so he has prescribed 10mg of Carbimazole for 2 months, to give me time to see things his way and agree to RAI. The surgeon who did the TT was very pleased with the outcome and certainly didn't anticipate any problems or mention any 'remnants'. I am so confused. I'm sure if I didn't spend all of my time in a heap on the floor in tears; or firing off like a rocket at the slightest thing, I could bring some logic to all this - but I don't seem to have any decent thought processes left! Has anyone else had a similar experience or does anyone have any idea what is actually happening? I would be really grateful for any help or information. Thank you.
