How often should I have blood tests following a total thyroidectomy? They have just reduced my levothyroxine 5 weeks ago as my T4 was high and TSH low.
I can't just go into the surgery and ask for a test, they won't let me. I have to make an appointment to see the GP first and then another appointment to have test. You can't get to see GP for at least 2 weeks, last time I made an emergency appointment because I couldn't get an appointment at all. My aftercare since my op has been awful, well non existent. Even had to sort my own dressing out. I feel like I've been left to just get on with it. I did complain to the surgeon at my follow-up with him but to no avail. Any one esle had this experience?
