Hi, Tomorrow is the day of my TT and frankly I am so scared. I hope that this is going to sort things out but fear it could get worse.
It is going to be removed because I have a rather rare form of Graves disease that throws me from hyper to hypo (via alternating stimulating and inhibiting anti-bodies). For 2 years, I have been like a yo-yo with doctors only reacting to blood tests with the prescription of either carbimazole or levothyroxine. I thought I was going mad, I put on 20kg in 2 years and so depressed about it.
I am scared of report of further weight gain after Thyroidectomy and the difficulty in having the proper medicine prescribed post operation. It sounds like most endocrine prescribes T4 because that's basically all they can do.
What is your experience?
