My name isSharonand I am 47 years old. I had a thyroidectamy in July after struggling with an over active thyroid, large goitre and abnormal cells for 5 years. I saw my surgeon last week and was told it was a very difficult op over 6 hrs long and that my thyroid was very inflamed. Somehow I expected to feel normal again after my ok but he'll no not a chance! I actually said to my surgeon - I wish I had never had the op and her reply was- Sharon if you hadn't it would have killed you!!!
They cannot get my T3 or T4 levels correct and tbh I was told I am very symptomatic with numerous symptoms. I constantly feel tired - slept for 3 hrs today, I am snappy, I burst into tears for no reason, my hair is falling out and i have gained over a stone in weight, despite joining slimming world I havent lost an ounce. My partner is very supportive of my illness but tbh I just want to feel normal again and feel like a woman and to start looking weight. Can anyone offer any advice please? I am on 125 lexothryoxin and iron tablets.
