I'm new to this site, my name is Maria, I'm 42 years old & I come from Greece.
The reason I'm writing is because I'm desperately looking for answers to my feeling so miserable after my complete thyroidoctomy Dec. 2014.
After being diagnosed as having Graves disease at least 11 years ago and leading a miserable most of the time life due to the symptoms, we decided to proceed with surgery. It's been 10 months and still struggling to find the right dosage.... and still having symptoms and still leading a miserable life to the point I think I need psychotherapy.
First was prescribed T4 150mg (and 175mg for a while), then during the summer from 150mg from one month to the other I got Hyper symptoms and from 150 mg I ended up taking gradually 125mg and some days 112mg.
Then towards the end of September got Hypo... (8,030 tsh). Endo thought should change pills. Since then, I've been on TIROCINT125mg, doctor told me to have blood tests after having taken it for 40 days, around 5th November. But now it's the middle of October and I'm having headaches, put on weight, actually feel.... huge, got depression and lack of energy, etc. I can't stand this anymore and on top of that I think my doctor doesn't really care to find out what is going on. Suppose I have to find a new one...
How should I go about it? Time matters and it's not fair for me to suffer like that if there's sth to be done!
Pls need to hear your experiences & advice.
Thank you loads in advance
