Hello all, thanks for this wonderful site. I'm pretty new here.
I had half my thyroid removed in July due to a tumor which turned out to be benign. I returned to the surgeon in Sept and she took bloods tests to see how my thyroid is functioning: not very well as it turns out (though I didn't get the results in print). I have some symptoms of hypo: freezing cold, dry skin, constipation. I am seeing her again this week for more bloods and possibly to discuss meds, although she's a surgeon not an endo...
Are there specific tests I should ask for? I'm imagining she will recommend levothyroxine but should I ask for a T3 T4 medication from the get go?
Thanks for any advice.
