OK y'all ..had a Thyroidectomy..that is over ..Three weeks out now about to do radioactive iodine on tomorrow..then isolation...now here is the part I don't understand again...he will be starting me on armour thyroid by Friday...Here is my question:::: he wants to start me on 240 !!! For 7 days then 120 thereafter!!! 240!??? I thought proper protocol was starting slowly and moving up ? Not blasting you with maximum dosage . I am one of those people that has toleration issues...even with blood pressure medication I had to start off slowly and work my way up...He is doing it backwards... can I break the pills up and start this thing off a little slower . The reactions I got from thyroid hormones in the last was rapid heartbeat and feeling like jumping out of skin...that was before my thyroidectomy...will it be easier to tolerate now that I have no thyroid...in the end before my TT...I was going hyper whoever reads this ...I know this sounds coocoo but any advice will help me ..thank u and God bless and am so grateful for this website
