I have just moved back to the UK after being in Australia for the past 3.5 years. I lost my left kidney due to repeat infections in May 2011 and had my 1st child in Sept 2012 where I gained over 30kgs mainly in my last trimester for no valid reason at that time. I was diagnosed by my GP with Hashimotos 6 months post baby and have been on Thyroxine ever since. I was never sent to a specialist and was told to just take the medication every day for the rest of my life get my levels checked every couple of months and that was it. I since have had my 2nd child 4 months ago and having a lot of symptoms and trying to find a specialist to manage my condition. I lost about 12kg and didn't gain much with my second but still can't shift the weight. I don't really have time to see a million private Drs and Practitioners in hope of finding the right one as I was shuffled around the health system back in Australia which caused me to have 3 weeks to live due to septicaemia it was only out of pure luck and determination I found the right Urologist to take me seriously and operate immediately. I am 30yrs of age and have young children depending on me could anyone recommend the best of the best!
Warm regards, Brooke.
