I had a total thyroidectomy 18 months ago, I have had a radioactive iodine treatment just over 12 months ago, last January the oncoligist noticed my T3 was high, I take 20mcg 3 times daily, that is all I take, no T4(levothyoxine) my surgeon has allowed me to stay on T3 because I have felt better on it, (I always felt dreadful on T4, dont think I could convert it efficiently). So at my last appointment (April 30th) I was told to reduce down to 2 x 20mcg, T3. I have felt a bit shakey on the 3 doses, but went down to 2 and felt exhausted. Surgeon says I have to keep TSH minimised to prevent cancer cells regrowing. Can anyone suggest help please? sally
