Hello my friends,
I just thought I'd check in and update you on my current status.
It's been just over 3 weeks since my surgery, and for the most part I am doing ok. I still seem to be experiencing some mild anxiety, especially at night, which causes insomnia. I have not had a good nights sleep in days. The internal tremors are still present, just not as often as before, and I have had a few bouts of heart palpitations lately, along with cold feet.
I have not had my thyroid levels tested yet, nor been given any thyroid meds. The doctor wanted to wait 6 weeks post op to do all of that. However, I was just prescribed Elavil to help me sleep. I haven't taken yet though, so please let me know if any of you have tried this and what I should expect.
I did a private test to check a few things and found that my cortisol is very high in the morning and in normal range in the evening, my cholesterol and LDL went up, as well as my estrodial. Which might explain the sleep problems.
I welcome any feedback you can give.
