Hi all,once i was diagnosed with an over active thyriod,i was put on propuricil[excuse my spelling]my Dr at the time said it was stress, he could see my tremors,i was under 7 stone,and had bulging eyes.Anyway one friday afternoon i tryed to see a Dr at my local surgery,only to be turned away,by Sunday Mum took me to out of hours,as i was being sick,and poops that wouldnt stop.Iv never been a complainer. I was admitted straight away[it was my 1st stay in hospital]they told me my bloods were deranged.Whatever that means! i was in for 4 days and was given beta blockers whilst they found out what it was that was wrong,as my pulse was off the scale,i came home with propiuricil,they kept upping it to what they said was the most they had ever seen[at endo] When they said that isnt working it was surgery firstly it was a partial thyroid removal,then at the very last minute after they had me in the SEAL unit waiting to go in for my operation,the surgeon came in and got me to sign a consent for a full thyroidectomy,i couldnt contact my Mum,it was all so quick.It will be 3 years this July coming since my op,and my thyroxine has been up and down it goes from 150mcgs to 175mcgs to 200mcgs .Im currently on 150mcgs .Is this common? I do wish id never had the op but its too late now of course .any answers will be gratfully recieved .Thank you in advance Jayne x
