Those who have seen my previous posts will know that I had a tumor and half my thyroid removed late November last year. Before this I had no Thyroid issues.
Since my op I've suffered fatigue and weight gain. At my 6 week check I'd put on 12lb and my 10 week check put on another 2lb, after 8 weeks of recovery I went back to the gym, my usual 3 times per week.But I am obviously still gaining weight, I'm at week 12 so been back at the gym 4 weeks and ive lost zero weight. My blood results are back from my 10 week check and my TSH continues to get worse (mentioned below) but not bad enough to be medicated. GP has said the exercise could be causing the weight gain with my thyroid function getting worse ?! I'm confused ! Surely exercise should help me lose weight ? Also my iron is slightly low but nothing to be concerned about (will try to get copy of results) so I'm told.
I'm so frustrated, should I give up exercise ?
