My endo called me the other evening and I was really impressed as she knows that I am not keen on rai or a Total Thyroidectomy . She listened to what i had to say and at the end of the conversation she asked me how I would want to proceed . My T3 and T4 are in range as I have been taking my carbimazole since the beginning of Feb and prior to this I had 15 month course but then got re started . I told her that I don't want to go hypo as on diagnosis my t4 was 86 ( 10 - 26 ) . The lowest it went to was 11.4 and I detested it as I felt tired , cold and had hair loss and could cry at the drop of a hat and my mood was so low. I am usually bubbly, energetic and positive so I had a really hard time feeling that way .She has decided to keep me on carbimazole 5mg for another 8 weeks but I said I was worried that by that time I would go hypo and I asked if I could take 5mg every other day and she agreed . I hope this makes sense and I am pleased as I feel that she has listened to my concerns and also my reasons why I am against things . I honestly thought she would go down the rai or tt route as that's what she has said in the past and I was thrilled to bits with how I am able to continue with my treatment . I hope I haven't bored you all to death ! .
