I had a total thyroidectomy 6 weeks ago and have just picked up a copy of my blood results. I understood that it was to be a "full blood count" and thought it would include T3 and T4 but I have only had TSH levels tested! Firstly, I thought after TT that it would be vital to have all thyroid hormones tested to see how the body is coping without the Thyroid? Secondly, I am seeing gp in the morning and know that there is a huge ongoing T3 debate and am wondering if that is the very reason I have not had it tested? (I live in Scotland and know that Gps are being advised that they can no longer prescribe T3)
My TSH result is 0.9 (0.27-4.2). I am not bouncing with energy and still off work and battling to keep on top of healthy eating and calorie counting. I can not gain any more weight as this was one of the main symptoms along with fatigue that caused my thyroid issues in the first place.
Thank you to anyone who can give advice.
