Hello I have recently had my left thyroid gland removed due to benign tumour on it and am confused by my thyroid function tests. Before my operation the tests were taken and the below result was given
T S H - 3.04 ulU/mL
Free T 3 - 4.31 pg/mL
Free T 4 - 21.3 pmol/l
Now I have the operation I am a bit lathargic, hair breaking and failling, have out on weight, nails brittle and I need to sleep. I don't know if this is the effects of the operation but it has been a month now so I feel as though I should be fine now. The results from the thyroid function tests I had last week are
T S H - 4.46 ulU/mL
Free T 3 - 5.70 pg/mL
Free T 4 - 12.38 pmol/l
The doctor that handed me them said they are normal but I am yet to give them to my surgeon.
I am confused by the difference in the numbers and of course I am thinking about the symptoms that I am having.
Any ideas please?
