I'm new here and have been on 100micrograms of Levothyroxine for coming up 6 weeks now. Going back to Drs on Wednesday (I had a blood test on friday so will get the results of that).
1st blood test showed TSH 19.9 and the following week it had gone up to 32.2. I have recently had chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. I just have couple of queries in case anyone can help please:
1) Symptoms seem the same i.e. no better, does that mean the dose isn't high enough?
2) Do the levels only go back to 'normal range' when Thyroxine dosage is right?
3) Being this high will it take a while?
4) Anyone else found chemotherapy has this effect on thyroid function? (probably question for another post!)
Thanks for reading
