I was booked to have my 2nd hip replacement operation today, but have just received a phone call from the hospital saying it's been cancelled. They've been grappling with my thyroid blood results it seems; have consulted an endo who said I'm not fit to undergo a major operation. The results were Free T4 0.3, TSH 0.02. Can't remember the ranges she said, didn't write them down. But as I said to her, I only take T3 so the FT4 result isn't applicable and the TSH result shows I'm well as last. It seems they didn't bother to do the FT3 test, despite my records showing I only take T3. !!! So now, to get this 2nd hip sorted out, I will have to reduce my thyroid meds to manipulate the blood tests. Aaaarrrrggghhhhh ! Still smiling (just). The injustice, hypocrisy, the ignorance takes the biscuit
