Hello, well I finally had my gyny op' on Friday after two false starts an endocrinologist and cardiologist referral. All went well (I was given no morphine or adrenaline) and I was in theatre for only half an hour then released to go home late afternoon. I mentioned I had a headache but was told not to worry, given paracetamol and told to keep drinking water to rehydrate. I did all I was told and drank as much as possible. Unfortunately, by 7pm my headache had grown worse and I started vomiting. At 10pm my husband called the hospital for advice and was told we'd get a call back. By midnight I thought I might be dying. I have never known pain like that - and I am a migraine sufferer so know how bad headaches can be. Paramedics came out at 3am and I was immediately given iv pain relief and taken to hospital where I was given iv fluids and anti-nausea meds. What a night. I was finally allowed home that afternoon and told to rest. My question: for two days now I've been 'resting' but still feel very odd. I feel ok when waking and getting up but both yesterday and today after taking my thyroxine and t3 (lyothironine) I've become lightheaded and dizzy. I feel very shaky and just 'out of it' generally. (A bit like my blood sugar levels are out?) I've had bigger surgeries in the past and haven't experienced anything like this! Please can anyone help? Is there some correlation between the thyroid drugs and post-op recovery? I've only been on t3 for a couple of years so haven't had any surgeries whilst on it. I have no thyroid after TT and I wasn't even this weird after those ops! I'm really quite worried as due back to work and there's no way I can function like this. Sorry it's a long one but you guys are the best at giving sound advice and/or opinion. Thank you! Lizzy xxxx
