I'm 8 months post total thyroidectomy because of cancer. I've had many thyroid labs in my life and all were normal. I've been super blessed to have not experienced any health problems for my age, and didn't even have hypo symtems when diagnosed. I had RAI 1 month after surgery and have been miserable ever since. My endo only treats with levothyroxin and up to 224 mcg and feel worse every week. I'm seeing new endo in 8 weeks but really scared what condition I will be in by then. My brain fog, attention span, memory, and pain in my bones are about to where I'm not able to perform my duties at work.
I'm just wondering if all the symptoms go away once you're treated properly, or do they stick with you? I saw a picture of myself a couple of days ago and burst out crying because I didn't even recognize that face 😥😥😥
