I don't know where to begin and this is probably more of a rant than anything but after trying my best to be "right" since the operation I've hit a brick wall that I can't see how I can get over.
Like a lot of people since my total thyroidectomy and bi-lateral neck dissection 2009 I have memory problems along with profuse sweating, lethargy, muscle aches and pains, depression and fatigue.
My employer said they can no longer accept the mistakes I make (it's just an ordinary admin' desk job working mostly with spreadsheets and some that I have done since leaving school). I have been supported by occupational health who informed my employers that I would be likely to lose concentration and make mistakes due to my condition and the amount and the medication I'm on.
Has anyone else been in a similar situation? I'm at the end of my tether, all I get from the hospital is "your bloods are fine/the thyroxine cannot make you feel the way you describe".
I feel like the last 5 years have been a hell of a struggle and now I think it's been a complete waste of effort on my part. Now at 39 years old it seems I'm no longer able to do the type of job I've always done and don't know what I can do employment wise I can't do a physical job due to the operation wrecking nerves (that the hospital wouldn't admit to) in my arm shoulder and neck.
I literally don't know what to do anymore and sorry if this post isn't very coherent.
What help can I get? I need help with money,/benefits and it looks like some kind of retraining to find a job I can do.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
