8 years ago almost to the day I finished treatment for throat cancer and then the fun began. I had a particularly unpleasant reaction to the treatment and as a result I can no longer swallow solid food so my diet has been pretty static all these years yet I have managed to put on 11Kgs since 2014 though oddly enough I was probably diagnosed with Hypothyroidism at least 3 years earlier, will confirm when tomorrow at a GP appointment.
Cancer treatment side effects and hypothyroidism meant it was difficult to attribute the difficulties I was having to which issue, I have blamed pretty much all my issues to the cancer treatment side effects but I am now beginning to wonder if that is the case.
A major issue is sleep or the lack of it. I have always been a poor sleeper but these days it has reached new heights with insomnia, sleep paralysis and non restorative sleep syndrome to mention 3 issues with the knock on effects of lack of concentration, stupid memory loss as in 'forget why I opened a cupboard,' have no interest in my 'interests' and I wonder can this be related to my thyroid problems?
