It's been a while since I've been here. My question is more for my own curiosity. I was wondering how much Levothyroxine you are taking daily after your total thyroidectomy. I've been thyroidless since October 2016 (nearly 6 months) and I can't seem to get my Levothyroxine dosage right. My GP has been very good and has allowed me to play with the dosage, so from 125mcg to 150mcg and alternate days etc. I still don't feel 100% though. I'm deficient in Vit D, calcium and Ferritin is on the low side.
I've put on weight, can't shift. My nails are brittle and have ridges on them and my hair is now thinner. I did put my last blood results on my last entry here and having another blood test done on Friday.
So, I'm curious to hear how much Levo you are taking and how do you feel? Also what is your routine with blood tests? How often do you have them?
