I had my thyroid removed 15 months ago after being hyper and unresponsive to treatment. It was the advice given to me by the endo and now 15 months later I'm still ill and have asked to go back and see the consultant as it appears my body is not converting T4 to T3 shown on a recent blood test.
I've read lots of stuff on people low in T3 who have their thyroid but can't seem to find much out about people without their thyroid. My doctor has written to the consultant about my low level of T3 and asked if he'll see me but he has responded with "I think you should get a second opinion off someone else" He's wrote to another hospital's endo department and they are refusing to see me too...
What the hell am I supposed to do, I have an issue with my conversion but no one wants to help me?
Has anyone had any similar experiences who don't have a thyroid anymore?
