Hello, I'll start with a little bit of background about myself and what care I have received.
I'm 22 years old (male), I had my thyroid taken out just under 3 months ago due to papillary thyroid cancer. (I have not received radiotherapy). I was originally placed on 125mcg levothyroxine.
Since my surgery I have seen my surgeon once (I will be seeing him again next week), I complained about how tired I felt etc but he didn't want me to increase my medication because my levels we're close to the 'correct' range. I decided to ignore this and increased my medication to 150mcg.
I felt better for a few weeks but I am now feeling extremely fatigued again with other hypothyroid symptoms.
I was wondering how long it has taken people to find the correct levels for themselves. Also I am a little surprised that my surgeon who is an ENT doctor is still my primary point of care, is this normal as I imagine that I would be seeing an endocrinologist or even a thyroid specialist?
