Hello, I'm new here and hoping you may be able to help.
I had a partial thyroidectomy 5 years ago after putting up with a multinodular goitre for too long. The size of a orange!
I now have only the right side left and have never been given any medication as apparently the half that is left is functioning fine.
I have many under active symptoms including weight gain and unable to lose weight even on calorie controlled diet & excercise.
Low libido, tiredness, short periods, dry skin and multiple early miscarriages.
My last bloods done in April came back fine I will put results below.
I'm sorry if this is silly question but how can half a thyroid provide and work as well as a whole?
I'm getting quite depressed as I don't know what I can do.
I am seeing doctor on Monday to review fertility results which I know came back ok.
What should I be asking?
I would love to try a 25mg thyroxine but I doubt that will happen.
I also have w sluggish adrenal gland.
Thanks in advance.
