Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a while as I have been ticking away okay on block and replace therapy. Due to come off meds in May next year to see what happens, I'm forever hopeful!
One thing however that has practicall plagued me through this treatment is the potential threat of agranulocytosis - it terrifies me. My Endo has quite a relaxed attitude towards it and reassures me at every appointment however I have a toddler who frequently catches sniffles and coughs from nursery and, if I got my WBC tested every time I had a sore throat I would never be away from the doctor!
I recently read something by Dr Toft who said that it would occur in the first few weeks of anti-thyroid treatment. Other sources say it can happen at any time on any dose.
Could someone clear up for me please?
The last twice I have had sore throat/fever I have had normal and healthy blood counts.
It will be approx one year since I started on Carb.
