Hello, I'm new to this forum, so apologies if I've gotten anything wrong.
To make a long story short, about a year ago I underwent a total thyroidectomy after having battled Grave's disease for much of my teens. Both my experience having an overactive thyroid and the 1 year post op have been painful; thinking about what i've gone through in the last few years makes me very tearful. Agreeing to have my thyroid totally removed is my biggest regret of my life. I'm 20 years old.
I am currently on 200mcg of Levothyroxine, and my bloods are all normal, but I still experience unexplained weight gain, very sluggish bowel, constant bloating to where I look pregnant and low mood. Of course, my eyes still protrude a lot from previously having Thyroid Eye Disease, which makes my self esteem even lower. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Will I feel like this forever?
