Hi folks, 2 1/2 yrs ago my husband went for a regular mot at drs where they told him he had a goitre. He was fit and very active at the time. The doctor arranged for him to be given a radioactive iodine pill and that was it. Since receiving that pill he has gone downhill dramatically. He has no energy, no libido, terrible heAdaches, pains all over etc. after 2 yrs with all his bloods coming back as normal and after seeing an encrinologist who advised us that my hubby was suffering from depression (no kidding!). we decided to go private. Within a month of doing this he was admitted for a partial thyroidectomy after which we were told by the consultant that he would be given thyroxine. It is now 6 weeks post op and he is exactly the same as pre-op!! He has again been told his bloods are normal although his calcium level is low . He is now convinced he will never be better - suggestions ????
