Hi, I'm very new to the forum and have recently had a thyroidectomy, I had the left half out in 2015 and the rest out July 2017. I wasn't given any medication following the first op and was told that my levels were fine (I believe my last test TSH was 0.7) although I felt rubbish and my hair was falling out.
Following this lates op I was started on a dose of 125mg and am now on 150mg after a visit to the consultant and GP who thought my symptoms were hypo, I take my medication at night as I was feeling quite disorientated taking it in the morning, this seems to have stoped now I'm taking it at night. (I realise it's early days as I only had my op on the 19th of July)
Now to my real worry, from a symptom perspective I think I've been hypo for a while, I've put on about 3st over the last 2-3 years, and I'm absolutely terrified of putting on more following my op, please could anyone advise me he best way to lose the weight I've already gained and prevent any further gain, I'm going for TSH blood tests in a couple of weeks, are there any specific add ons that I should ask for?
