I am about to undergo knee surgery, in a week. Pre-op bloods showed that my thyroid level was slightly low. I don't know the exact reading and hopefully I t won't stop the surgery when I meet the anaesthetist.
I can only tolerate levothyroxine 25mg daily but I have been fairly well since I added liiothyronine 25mg daily. I have always informed the Gp but am not sure he understands much. He just smiles benignly and encourages the thyroxine.
Do I understand that taking the T3 suppresses the TSH. I think I need to know a bit when I meet the anaesthetist. I have been waiting ages for this op and don't want to miss out now.
Please let me have your ideas.
